Today was a great day. I watched in awe as my sister cared for her 3-day-old son, spoke kindness to her husband, lovingly rowsed her 2&1/2-yr-old daughter from an afternoon nap, welcomed guests into her home, socialized with neighbours on her front lawn, and still managed to smile for most of the day. And all this after a c-section! What struck me most was her strength. We all carry it inside of us. Life throws us twists and turns, but we have the ability to flourish in them, if we choose. That is how we find out how strong we really are. Not in overcoming the moment, but in living the moment. Today I watched my sister live in her moments – with strength and love. It was a beautiful sight!
