      This is heartbreaking. I have a sister who is going through this with her husband. Words can not express how difficult it is for me to witness this drastic change happening in their lives. Their courage, strength and deep love for one another is inspiring. There is such perspective in this world, such everyday heroes, that I can honestly say I rarely have a bad day. Gratitude is a practice that carries me through the chaos and meaningless nonsense that can crowd out the true beauty of a deep and purposeful life of connection to the natural world and loved ones.
