lessons in acceptance

1. Put a pot of dirt outside, but don't plant anything in it. Wait for God to blow seeds into the soil, then cultivate whatever lands and takes root.

2. Become pregnant. When you're asked if you're hoping for a baby boy or a baby girl, say that you'll love whoever is growing inside you.

3. Scatter birdseed religiously and see what creatures you attract. If wild parrots don't flock to your patio, find beauty in the sparrows that do.
