Water and Light

23 Jan

I live in the Midwest, where grey skies and wind chill are getting me down, so I took my daughter to the public conservatory a few days ago in search of plant life, peace and easy companionship. Somewhere between the Koi Pond and the children’s play area (which she’s sadly outgrown) was this simple waterfall rolling over piles of stones someone had stacked.

Watching the water, I thought to myself:


Every day, we build our lives.

No matter what comes,

no matter where we are,

every day,

we build our lives.


Reciting this phrase has been like a ray of sunshine for me this week, so I wanted to share – because maybe it will light you up a bit, too.
