it’s amazing that, no matter how silly and light-hearted, shopping is something that can sometimes make my heart feel just a tad lighter. and i am thankful for that. 

Anytime you’re gonna grow, you’re gonna lose something. You’re losing what you’re hanging onto to keep safe. You’re losing habits that you’re comfortable with, you’re losing familiarity.

i’m having an off day and i don’t even really know why.

I guess the husband sensed it though because he wrote me a letter and read it out loud to me with his head on my shoulder.

thank you jesus for giving me a man who understands even if I don’t understand myself.

At a certain point, I just have to try not to think too much about certain things, or else they’ll break my heart.

You can never care too much,
you can only choose the wrong things to
hold close.

I want to keep my soul fertile for the changes, so things keep being born in me, so things keep dying when it is time for things to die. I want to keep walking away from the person I was a moment ago, because a mind was made to figure things out, not to read the same page recurrently.

I would go to the deeps a hundred times to cheer a downcast spirit. It is good for me to have been afflicted, that I might know how to speak a word in season to one that is weary.
