“I want to see beauty. In the ugly, in the sink, in the suffering, in the daily, in all the days before I die, the moments before I sleep.”
Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

“Sometimes you don’t know when you’re taking the first step through a door until you’re already inside.”
Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

But a thousand broken and missed things, tens of thousands, lie in the wake of all the rushing.... Through all that haste I thought I was making up time. It turns out I was throwing it away.”
Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
