Life is Grace

discoveries of grace in my messy and imperfect, but blessed, life

A couple of weeks ago I was hospitalized for severe depression and PTSD. I am slowly, with the help of some amazing doctors, fighting my way back. It’s hard, I’m waiting for a new antidepressant to kick in, but I am attempting to focus on living day by day. It’s worth it. Maybe I’m worth it, too.

I like living.
I have sometimes
been wildly,
despairingly,
acutely miserable,
racked with
sorrow, but
through it all I
still know quite
certainly that just
to be alive is a
grand thing.

–Agatha Christie

One thought on “To Be Alive

  1. Barbara, dear – You ARE worth it. I pray that soon you will feel that, too. You are a marvelously creative person. You publish extraordinary art, and I am so inspired by your posts.
