Sometimes I get this feeling that I am myself for the first time in my life. It's a strange feeling to have, and I attribute it mostly to the feeling of peace, of being okay with not knowing the answers. I don't expect it to last forever, but I'm grateful for its presence.
I've also experienced this refreshing sense of energy. Even though I feel weak from being sick, I feel very alive and awake. This may be attributed to Daylight Savings Time. I adore the sun, and the fact that it's still light outside when I get home from work. Or it may be attributed to God's spirit, which I have prayed for a deeper knowledge and understanding of, even if just a glimpse.

I have been thinking a lot about life and death lately. Sam's grandpa has been diagnosed with lung cancer. My close friend just had her 3rd miscarriage in 6 months. And another friend of mine had her first child safely, after being hit by a motorcycle while pregnant and recovering from brain damage. I believe that love is the most important factor to a fulfilling life. And that life, at its core, is beautiful.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me through my blog. I hope you enjoy these pictures from the weekend. And I hope that you, too, are able to find refreshment and renewal in your own life.
...oh, and Happy St. Patrick's Day! :)
