life & grace
Sad? Maybe. But I continue to believe in grace, the grace that arrives when you are empty and have discovered that you are in an isolated place, startled, embarrassed and frightened. Grace carried me into the arms of compassionate friends who are on the confusing path of life with me. In gratitude I discovered laughter, tears and relief. I have discovered that some of the cranky imperfect bits of me are not all that important, not the big deal I thought they were and am learning to not take myself so seriously. I'm learning to forgive myself. Most important of all, I know that it's ok for me to ask for the emotional openness that I am willing to give.
"I know nothing, except what everyone knows -- if there when Grace dances, I should dance."
