(A friend sent me a copy of this passage from my book that she said was an important reminder for her so thought I’d repost and share – it turned out to be a good reminder to me and my sons as well.)
Always remember what is perfect for you! Your life does not belong to anyone but you and at best, it’s only borrowed from God for the time He has designed. Perfection is the ideal but perfect is how the simplest, truly magical things each day add up to make you smile at night when you afford them their proper recognition, and set aside the truly unimportant and meaningless frustrations that in time will be forgotten as they fade and take their place among the fairly inconsequential. I wish this for you each day because I love you my children. Make sure to share this magic in the hope that someone who needs it may also end their night with a smile when they reflect upon what was so simple to share.
