“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
As a mother of young children I learned that getting down to my child’s level and speaking softly was more effective than standing tall and shouting. A child will work at listening to a quiet voice.
Adults are like that too.
Social media and the news is wearing me down this week. I may have to take a break from it for a few days. Meanwhile, let’s continue to speak life, with grace, amidst the cacophony today.
Here: preparing for a weekend company and enjoying coffee, pleasant conversation, and a pumpkin spice frappuccino with my bestie.
