Paying My Respects

The last several days have been so heavy, haven’t they?  Feels like the whole world is groaning and straining against darkness.  I tried to write a post about Robin Williams, but just couldn’t manage to capture and contain the words teasing and fluttering against my brain.

Instead, I’m sharing this Facebook post written by Anne Lamott.   It is worth the read.

My one overwhelming response is that I deeply desire to be more aware of depression and more equipped for addressing it in ways that are helpful and don’t add burden.  I love this quote from another blogger I follow:  “We think we need the right answers, when what we really need is to show up and care.”

May God give me grace to show up and care, and eyes to see it when the opportunity presents itself.
