“Don't wish me happiness
I don't expect to be happy all the time...
It's gotton beyond that somehow.
Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor.
I will need them all.”

Gift from the Sea is my favorite book to gift. I'm never without a spare copy. Anne Morrow Lindbergh was not only the wife of a famous aviator, she was a mother, and an acclaimed author. Her work spanned genres and is led by the wisdom she gained from her life of travel and inquiry. I've attached links to a few of my favorite below

I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness, and the willingness to remain vulnerable.”
