Life's Basic Lesson Plan

I am reading a book titled "Kitchen Table Wisdom - Stories that Heal" by Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D. I really liked this statement about life's basic lesson plan and thought it was worth sharing:

We are all here for a single purpose: to grow in wisdom and to learn to love better. We can do this through losing as well as through winning, by having and by not having, by succeeding or by failing. All we need to do is to show up openhearted for class.

Ann,
Your mother is in my prayers. Glad she is in the neuro unit away from the YIPI and improving. What does YIPI stand for anyway? Just curious.
