HAVE COURAGE FOR
THE GREAT SORROWS OF LIFE
PATIENCE FOR THE SMALL ONES;
AND WHEN YOU HAVE LABORIOUSLY
ACCOMPLISHED YOUR DAILY TASK,
GO TO SLEEP IN PEACE.
GOD IS AWAKE.

This supportive, amazing corner of the blogging community, which I am honored to be a part of, recently lost a well-liked member. I didn't really know Tina Downey but the outpouring of grief and shock that filled blog posts over the last few weeks showed just how important she was to so many. In honor of Tina, sunflowers will bloom all over the blogosphere today, providing virtual warmth and sunshine and joy to all.
