The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.― Frederick Buechner
That place where I see pieces of myself in others. That tells me I belong. That I am not alone. That we are one.
The Sunday ritual of breakfast with my brother at the grill where our nephew buses tables.
The weekly writing session with my first local and longest running writing buddy.
The third grade class’ young teacher with the same vulnerability and passion I remember having as a young teacher.
The group of teachers who meet regularly to celebrate the end of the work week, even though half of us are now retired.
The stranger in the grocery store who returns my smile.
The “likes” on my blog from people I only “know” from afar.
The place of deep gladness and hunger I call deep love.
