It's No Accident

"Joy does not simply happen to us.

We have to choose joy

and keep choosing

it every day."
-Henri Nouwen

Henri was one of my favorite professors at Divinity School. He taught a course on compassion. He always wore a blue pullover sweater that had holes in the elbows. I patched them for him during one seminar that met at his house...He taught me everything about how to be a wounded healer...

Holly that is incredible. What a wonderful education you received from this man. I like envisioning you sewing up his sweater and the coziness of seminars in his home. Thanks for sharing.
