With the end of January here and the simple freshness of a brand new year waning, I’m renewing my intentions to be more gracious, forgiving, and patient with myself. To get it right, no matter the tries because Love is infinite tries. To get it right, despite the unexpected twists along the way, because Love shines brightest just after the rain. And mostly, giving myself grace to get it right, no matter the day of the week or month of the year. Because Love is always new and fresh each moment.
With that, a few favorites on the web these days.
