“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.”
“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.”

from Jayber Crow, by Wendell Berry

Dear one,

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.
