Earlier today, I was surprisingly reminded by my 12-year-old son, Ever, of something incredibly crucial to living as living should be. Ever said, "Did you notice the balloons in the sky?" My heart raced as I said, "No! Wow!" I exclaimed because, lately, I realized I hadn't really looked at the sky as often as I usually do. I've been keeping my perspective at eye level, at the level I understand, or on the ground when I think about things I need to do. Looking up reminds me of the possibilities, the hope, and the potential of the future yet to come. So, I looked up and began to consider the possibilities and dream. Hope lifted my heart. Thanks, Ever. <3

I have been living by this Faith since I was a young child and have occasionally strayed from it's clear path, but thankfully, I come back with greater vigor each time I stray as I rededicate my efforts to learn from every experience. It's a tedious course, but absolutely vital to achieving the grandest goal in life: happiness.
