“Grieve in places the world does not forgive.  Rejoice in places the world does not notice.  Live with a patience that the culture cannot sustain, and a hope that the world cannot imagine.”Krista Tippett

Thanks to all who visit this site, and  especially to all of you who have grieved, rejoiced, and hoped with us on this journey!

In the brief time I’ve been linking to the blog entries from a year ago, I am often struck by how appropriate they seem on the first anniversary of their online publication.  Today is one such time.  It’s one of my personal favorites.

One year ago today

Open to the day

Happy Thanksgiving! Since I did not began re-posting earlier posts until 2020, the post linked just above (“Open to the day”) which was written in November 2012 has not yet been re-posted. It remains one of my very favorites and is perfect for Thanksgiving. I hope you will visit the post (again, if you’ve been with me since 2012, or for the first time, if you were not with us then). I love it all the more now that my amazing Mama is no longer with us on earth.

This post was first published seven years ago today. The original post, comments and photo are linked, along with two other related posts, below. These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.


  1. The Lighthouse is also a metaphor for benevolent humans who light up people’s life, during their darkest hour. 🤩

    • How true! And we all depend on those people who shine for us. Thanks for being here.
