YOU BRAVE AND GLORIOUS THING

~Silver~

“How many years of beauty do I have left?
she asks me.

How many more do you want?
Here. Here is 34. Here is 50.

When you are 80 years old
and your beauty rises in ways
your cells cannot even imagine now
and your wild bones grow luminous and
ripe, having carried the weight
of a passionate life.

When your hair is aflame
with winter
and you have decades of
learning and leaving and loving
sewn into
the corners of your eyes
and your children come home
to find their own history
in your face.

When you know what it feels like to fail
ferociously
and have gained the
capacity
to rise and rise and rise again.

When you can make your tea
on a quiet and ridiculously lonely afternoon
and still have a song in your heart
Queen owl wings beating
beneath the cotton of your sweater.
Because your beauty began there
beneath the sweater and the skin,
remember?

This is when I will take you
into my arms and coo
YOU BRAVE AND GLORIOUS THING
you’ve come so far.
I see you.
Your beauty is breathtaking.

You can’t wrap love in a box,






You can’t wrap love in a box,
but you can wrap a person in a hug.

wipe out disease, … not the patient.






” Always hate
what is wrong, 
but don’t hate
the one who errors.

Hate sin 
with all your heart, 
but forgive 
and have mercy 
on the sinner.

Criticize speech, 
but respect 
the speaker.

Our job’s 
to wipe out 
disease, …. not 
the patient. ” 

– Imam ash – Shafi’ee

To be happy is to find…





“To be happy is to find
strength in forgiveness,
hopes in battles,
security on the stage of fear,
love in disagreements.
It is to thank God every minute
for the miracle of life” .

The beauty of life is…..






“The beauty of life is
while we cannot undo what is done
we can see it, understand it, learn from it and change 
so that every new moment is spent 
not in regret, guilt, fear or anger 
but in wisdom, understanding and love.”

– Jennifer Edwards
