Mourning Joy

From Linda Della Donna

Today's quote is by Queen Victoria, another widow, taken from a letter she wrote to her daughter after the death of Albert:

"How I, who leant on him for all and everything-without whom I did nothing, moved not a finger, arranged not a print or photograph, didn't put on a gown or bonnet if he didn't approve it, shall go on, to live, to move, to help myself in difficult moments."

As we begin our day, after we remember Him, and the days gone by, let us lift one finger, rearrange one photograph, gloss our lips, breathe in, breathe out, and move forward, while we work through the difficult moments.

And today's Mourning Joy comes from Tim Z:

Q: Why was the baby Ant confused?

A: All his uncles were ants.
