I'm tired. Tired of boxes, tired of living in survival mode, tired of our self-imposed family separation.
Tired, tired, tired.
In frustration, I made a cup of tea, and turned to my books. I never fail to find comfort or courage in the pages of my favorites.
In the end, it was unassuming Bilbo Baggins stuck in the goblin caves, who spoke the most to me.
"Go back?" he thought. "No good at all!
Go sideways? Impossible!
Go forward? Only thing to do!
On we go!
So up he got and trotted along with his little sword held in front of him, and one hand on the wall, his heart all of a pitter and a patter."
Going forward-it's the only thing to do. Reminders of your path, like courage, can be found in the most unlikely places.
I'd love to know what words bring you comfort and courage. Please share!
And if you are looking for a few more of my favorites (including the CS Lewis quote I used in my post title) you can find them on my "quotables" Pinterest board.
