cracks let the light shine in

the cabin trip concluded with a game of apples-to-apples on the boat and a bonfire under the stars.  as i watched the flames dance below the night sky, i started thinking about how grateful i was for the weekend: the time with family and friends, the easy laughs, the consistent sunlight, and the leisurely days.  thinking about gratitude and starlight reminded me of the leonard cohen quote, “there is a crack in everything, and that is how the light gets in.”  suffering, by definition, is painful, but the experience allows us to develop our capacity for gratitude and joy.  overcoming hardship allows us to see the value of small things with fresh eyes, and to be thankful for the simple, pleasant things in life.
