The Guest House
"This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond." --RUMI
Grateful for these things today:
1) A sub at yoga who taught an amazing class.
2) A six-kid play date so fun that not one of them asked for screen time, not even once.
3) Octopus bolongase at the new restaurant in the site of our wedding reception. The mingling of old and new happy memories.
