May we lift one another up in prayer. Let us learn from all we experience, grow when we feel loss. Be kind. Be honest. Give generously. Receive graciously. Have courage in hope. Persevere through despair. Believe in goodness, no matter what. Recognize value and worth in the mirror and in one another. Seek justice. Accept mistakes. Apologize. Forgive. Deliver words with prudence and compassion. Listen discerningly. Be anchored. Be adaptable.
Let us be mindful of the very gift each breath of life is, painful or joyful, easy or hard. We have in each one a chance to LIVE fully, truly and gratefully from each one forward.
