“Family life is full of major and minor crises — the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce — and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It’s difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul.” – Thomas Moore
The words of Thomas More feel more important than ever these days. Moore speaks to the continuing need for dignity and respect in all areas of our life. Recent situations make these words more meaningful than ever. The way we treat our children, our family, and our friends creates a lasting effect. I hope you will keep dear friends in your thoughts….one is dealing with cancer, one is dealing with a life changing move, another friend is facing insurmountable challenges with her children and an ongoing illness. My friends manage their issues on a daily basis and when treated with dignity and respect their pain become more manageable.
