The lumpy mashed potatoes that we share.
The blurry photos that bring forth stories from long ago.
The delayed flights that carry us safely home.
The creaky knees that remind us of living.
The missing chairs that remind us of loving.
For all of the perfections wrapped in imperfections,
we give thanks.
If you are planning ahead for holiday gifts (maybe a good idea, with global supply chains in disarray), we hope you might consider Month of Sundays, which can be found at all of your favorite booksellers. One friend recently mentioned that she’s bought a stack of books to gift as she begins to reconnect with loved ones who have been apart, as a way to say, “welcome back.”
Thank you to those who have supported this endeavor to date, where proceeds have allowed us to give more generously than usual to some of the most vital nonprofits around. We designed the book to be evergreen, and hope it will bring comfort and connection through times of ease and times of challenge alike.
