What I can do is offer myself wholehearted and present to walk with people I love through the fear and the mess that's all any of us can do that's what we're here for
"This is what I want you to do: I want you to tell someone you love them, and dinner’s at six. I want you to throw open your front door and welcome the people you love into the inevitable mess with hugs and laughter. Gather the people you love around your table and feed them with love and honesty and creativity, because there will be a day when it all falls apart.
There are things I can’t change. Not one of them. Can’t fix, can’t heal, can’t put the broken pieces back together. But what I can do is offer myself, wholehearted and present, to walk with the people I love through the fear and the mess. Thats all any of us can do. Thats what we’re here for." - Shauna Niequist
