True Compass…a wonderful read

“What binds us together across our differences in religion or politics or economic theory is that when each one of us is cut, our blood flows red.  Mine does and yours does too.  Those who would try to appropriate God or family or country for their own narrow ends, who believe that religious faith is the property of one particular ideology, forget the width of God’s embrace, the healing power of a family’s arms, and the generosity of this country’s vision.  God, family, and nation belong to us all. “~Edward M. Kennedy

This has been a wonderful companion for me in steamy bathes,  Geo-Bees, bake sale tables,  and snowy days.  I shall miss the Senator even more now, because before these long winter days he hadn’t made me smile or made me long for a smooth sail around Hyannis.
