My mind, spinning,
the heart, quickening,
both fixed on the kin,

The best luck I’ve ever experienced in life is my beautiful mother. Continue having a Happy Birthday Week, Momma!
“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” — Abraham Lincoln
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
— Prayer of Saint Francis
