From my reading

Sometimes resilience arrives in the moment you discover your own unshakeable goodness. Poet Galway Kinnel writes, “Sometimes it’s necessary to reteach a thing its loveliness.” …And the soul quickens at hearing what it didn’t know it already knew… Resilience is born by grounding yourself in your own loveliness, hitting notes you thought were way out of your range.

    Oh, Laura I was just thinking of and missing you and everyone else at Notre Dame, so I checked your blog. I hope you are well, and busy contemplating your own loveliness, but not too much…that just isn’t Catholic. 😉
