content, adj.

I think that what I feel for you doesn’t shout
It’s expertly tamed, I’ve mastered it
It digs inside where happiness is found
It doesn’t chase any outward ideal
And what I desire is something lasting
Not pure longing but a simple story
A sight of beauty when your smile comes chasing
Leaves me begging the day to last like eternity
It’s true, our days are both difficult and easy
And those to come, we have yet to discover
But I already know that I’m more than lucky
I’ve found my place in a world without forever

*Favorite quote :)

“Thomas Merton once said that the spiritual life is essentially to love. One doesn’t love in order to do what is good or to help or to protect someone. If we act that way, we are perceiving the other as a simple object, and we are seeing ourselves as wise and generous persons. This has nothing to do with love. To love is to be in communion with the other and to discover in that other the spark of God.”
-Paulo Coelho (By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept)

Happy Birthday, Nikki! :)

My dearest sister from another sister,

You know I enjoy…
All the pranks we do expertly
All the stupid things we routinely do
All the “bitin” endings of our crazy stories
And the foolishness we hold on to
Plus a million things and more
I wouldn’t mind keeping score
But tell me can’t you see?
They spell “fun” in you and me

Happiest Birthday, Nikki my 🐕💕!
The Lord bless you with all the happiness you deserve. ❤
