  3. That’s an incredibly powerful quote and thank you for sharing. Somebody has put me onto Mary Oliver before and I need to head back and read more of her work.
    When I look at that quuote at first glance, I’d say “get that book published at long last. More if possible.” However, when you look at what matters to me in everyday life, and that is helping people and love is hopefully what I’m sharing as my life’s mission. When all is said and done, everything else is secondary. As a PS to that, I’ll also add that each of us show love in different ways. My thing is cooking and more on the side of baking. My husband’s never-ending mission seems to be fixing things. Lately, stuff around the house has been more than willing to oblige too. Last night, the fuse box out the front of the house blew and we were left without power until the electrician could come. Hubby couldn’t fix that or the washing machine we finally replaced last weekend, but he certainly tried. Best wishes,
