May 24th

“We need to give each other the space to grow,
to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity.
We need to give each other space so that we may both give
and receive such beautiful things as ideas,
openness, dignity,
joy, healing, and inclusion.”
~ Max De Pree (b.1924), author, former CEO of Herman Miller, Inc.
I am trying to use my space wisely today
but
can not seem to concentrate on anything at the moment.
Maybe I just need to find myself some space
to just relax and rest.
********
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.”
~ Reinhold Niebuhr
