thank you

The beautiful thing about living in this world is that you live life with others. Guess what? You don't have to have everything figured out all the time. No, you're not supposed to. That way, you learn to rely on other people, as vulnerable as it may feel sometimes.

You take comfort in knowing that others will inevitably rely on you one day. But for now, when it's hard to admit you can't do it alone and life's problems seem bigger than your five foot frame, it's enough to know that other people will answer your scribbled messages asking for prayers. And they answer them with love, rosaries, hugs, smiles, texts, and well wishes.

This is community. It's humbling.
