And we meet halfway – happy midweek

“It was finally becoming clear to her, that love wasn’t finding a perfect person to marry. Love was about seeing through to the truth of the person, and accepting all shades of light and dark. Love was an ability.” lovequotebook.com

Stumbled upon this and it took all the words out of me. Truly love is an ability, empowering a person to a life of acceptance and forgiveness. A true sense of the meaning of being selfless.

Thankful its midweek, though the days and weeks are blurring into sudden waves of months. I highly suspect that June will be greeting each of us sooner than we like.

So for now, let tomorrow’s worries wait for tomorrow and I thought I’d share some yummy breakfast overnight oats I prepared after being inspired by pinterest:
