Enduring vs Enjoying

All things are meant to be either endured or enjoyed. They are opposite sides of the same mountain. The dark hard path of endurance is hidden from any good light and an endless number of obstacles.

Do you know that I love you?

One of my sons crawled in my bed tonight after being told multiple times to get in his own bed. I normally have to be firm on this because he does it a lot. It doesn’t upset me, really.
