I’m waking up earlier than ever before in my life (I’m a night owl and SO not a morning person!) and I’m usually out of the house about 7 or 7:30 am. In many ways, those walks are a highlight of my day. They’re also good for me — in every way I can think of.

We need to also make space for lament today.
Our hearts are broken,
We are people who always hold some kind of pain
