Having one of my favorite summers ever, I pause in gratitude. ... Yet too, I've recently touched places of humanity and vulnerability at times, amidst my strong "invulnerable" self. ... I am mindful we all have those soft spots... and I love this quote:
When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability... To be alive is to be vulnerable. (And I would add)..perhaps it is in coming to know our vulnerabilities, we touch places we most love and care.
