Inspired By.

Friday is where I’ve found redemption this week. I was deep in a funk for most of it – frustrated again with software problems and thwarted plans. Missing mom and her words of wisdom. Sweating the small stuff, the scary stuff, and the summer weather that has turned every blade of grass to tinder.

But today.

This morning.

I woke up to this sweet face and this pot of impatiens that, having survived the heat of this suffocating week, bloomed lovely in the early sun, and I was reminded – it is good to be alive.

Tell me, where did you find grace this week?
