Today we take a walk down memory lane. Some of us have had happy childhoods, others traumatic. I know for me, despite the difficulties God’s hand was evident.

We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It’s like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can’t stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.”  Anne Lamott
