During these last few weeks, I have had a hard time leaving the house, but I have tried to spend at least a short time outside each day. A few days ago, I was able to go on a short walk and came across a stunning church. As a sat on a bench outside the church with gorgeous sunlight poking through the trees, it hit me: life is so beautiful.
There is so much ugly in this world, but beauty is everywhere. Beauty is a cup of English breakfast tea in the morning. It’s the birds chirping outside my window when I can’t get out of bed. It’s in a book I can’t help but keep reading through the night. Beauty is in all the family and friends (that includes you, blog friends!) who have supported me during one of the hardest times in my life. It’s in the tree-lined streets where I take my walks. Life can be hard, but it is so, so beautiful.
Thank you so much for your support as I go through this today. I had hoped to answer all the sweet comments and emails I received before the surgery, but the last few weeks have made it difficult. Just know that I have read and appreciate every single comment. I appreciate so much that y’all have stuck with me when I had trouble reading other blogs and answering comments on mine. I will try to post an update on the blog or social media as soon as I can.
