day 261
i read from the book sporadically throughout the day,
filling it with sticky notes and turned down pages. 
a couple of days ago i convince myself to stop reading, 
it is too much, and there will be little chance of coming
out the other side unscathed.  
but the pull is mighty, so i take it slowly, digesting parts in tiny, 
manageable, bite size pieces. . .  
while the dog sits in my lap, offering up his warmth, 
and his unconditional love. 

“The journey is learning that pain, like love, is simply something to surrender to. It's a holy space we can enter with people only if we promise not to tidy up.” 
― Glennon Doyle Melton, Love Warrior: A Memoir
