Creating Beauty And Joyful Moments

"Life is a long journey, and if we are to make it to the end with resilience, we have to plan for refreshment along the way. 

A friend once told Sarah that her love for beauty seemed a bit frivolous. However, I have always taught my children that they are responsible to keep a light burning in their souls -- whatever it takes. Creating beauty and joyful moments in the midst of a fallen, sad world is what gives light to others and nurtures that same light in our own souls. By taking a break, I am not ignoring the pain or difficulties but admitting that in order to keep going and giving of myself for many years to come, I have to take responsibility for replenishing my soul and seeking to fill the spiritual, emotional, and physical cup of my life with nourishment."
