this from a letter from Katie…I think it (in the way all gestures of love do) saved part of my life, today:

“We change, our needs and desires change, we change course a thousand times in one day and also stay completely, terrifyingly, secretly still alone in a room, and all we can do is silently wish with everything in us that people extend us the same forgiveness that we ourselves have extended so many times without having been asked for it, that they would allow us grace and mercy when we are having such a hard time granting it to ourselves.”
