“You have been given questions to which you cannot be given answers. You will have to live them out—perhaps a little at a time.”from Jayber Crow, by Wendell Berry
“And how long is that going to take?”
“I don’t know. As long as you live, perhaps.”
“That could be a long time.”
“I will tell you a further mystery,” he said. “It may take longer.”
Don’t let your impatience rob you of the joy that can come from the journey itself. It’s great to accomplish a goal that you’ve set for yourself, but try not to forget to acknowledge and celebrate the day-to-day victories. They may be smaller by comparison, but without them, the bigger goals are far less likely to happen.
Never forget that I love you, and that excludes no one.
