Love Jo all your days, if you choose, but don't let it spoil you, for it's wicked to throw away so many good gifts because you can't have the one you want.
~ Louisa May Alcott.
I’ve been thinking about longing. Advent- ‘Come thou long expected Jesus:…. Longing for things – or ones past, longing for dreams to come, longing for healing and loved ones, longing for hope.
I did a search for quotes and was surprised to read the one above from Little Women. In that simple sentence is a lesson.
When there is nothing to be done to realize our deep longings, there is still something to be done with what we have been given.
Thanks Ms Alcott.
I needed that.
