An Open Heart

I have been awake since early morning. Of course, I would have liked to sleep more, but right now that’s not happening. Can I give myself the comfort of my patience? Can I accept myself right now? I return to something I wrote in my book, Comfort & Joy: Simple Ways to Care for Ourselves […]
