That is so lovely! Will need to re-read!
Glad you like it! Peace. –Dennis
For me, Dennis, tolerance is a supreme virtue and you allude to it wonderfully here; that we ‘mend and renew’ i’m a little skeptical frankly but the intention and the thought behind it i admire very much.
Peace and Love
And, indeed, In the end living a virtuous life has value whether a goal is reachable or not. Have a great day, John. Peace and thanks for sharing; –Dennis
I would put this in context that makes sense to me. Only when we know what it is within us that we need to strengthen can we let go of expecting and demanding of others…..
Thank you Dennis for sharing these thought provoking words!
A wise addendum. Thanks, Val. Peace! –Dennis
