I wrote this on an airplane 

Today, somewhere high above the Idaho/Washington border I jotted this down…

I’m excited to be Alive today. Amazed by the topography I see as I fly over Idaho and Washington, my home. Excited to see my sister when I land. Happy to be chatting with this woman next to me about skiing. Blessed to talk to the cab driver who’s Dallas drawl reminded me of my dearly cherished and constantly missed Gramma Jo. Encouraged by this cabbie’s kindness as he thanked me for the work I do. It’s easy to get bogged down by the stress, but life is beautiful even when its edges feel extra sharp; even when it hurts.
