Thank you, Moose&Michelle, for thinking my blog is pretty cool!

meet me where I am

today I asked:

joy, meet me where I am

and I was met

in my anxiety, joy met me as courage and calm

in my need, joy met me as laughter and connection with good friends and nature

in my silence, joy met me as wisdom
