She knows.

July 31, 2015

I love Elizabeth Gilbert.  In Eat Pray Love, she quotes an Italian phrase: devo farmi le ossa. 

“I need to make my own bones”

A reminder to build my own strength.

But, at the same time, I also want to acknowledge and appreciate the support I receive, especially from unexpected places: a classmate, likely remembering our conversation about my feeling homesick and lonely today, invited me to go out tomorrow morning.  What a sweetheart.

There are precious moments here.  And I think, if I can keep my eyes closely on those, I will find strength.
