“But this is what I'm finding, in glimpses and flashes: this is it. This is it, in the best possible way. That thing I'm waiting for, for that adventure, that movie-score-worthy experience unfolding gracefully. This is it. Normal, daily life ticking by on our streets and sidewalks, in our houses and apartments, in our beds and at our dinner tables, in our dreams and prayers and fights and secrets - this pedestrian life is the most precious thing any of us will ever experience.” - Shauna Niequist, Cold Tangerines

This is the good stuff. These are the moments I want to hold onto. When it feels like life is harder than I would prefer, I want to hold onto these times together and remember my home team and that they are always in my corner.
