    Hello Maureen from the Chihuahua Desert in NM–I am so blessed to have been raised by parents who valued the latter and I happily and gratefully live each moment in a state of awe. This is a most beautiful quote, one I have never read before, and so true. What a pleasure it is to take this journey with your gracious soul. Blessings.

    Truer words have never been spoken. Why do we forget them so easily? I echo Maria’s sentiment: thanks for reminding us, Maureen.

      We are in a constant state of forgetting/remembering/forgetting/remembering, no? Thanks Sofia, sending a hug from up here.
