Bless the notebook that I always carry in my pocket.
And the pen.
Bless the words with which I try to say what I see, think, or feel.
With gratitude for the grace of the earth.
The expected and the exception, both.
For all the hours I have been given to be in this world.
– Mary Oliver, Good Morning

Stunning. These words seem to capture it all. Thank you for sharing this particular Mary Oliver quote.
I love Mary Oliver’s poetry. My favorite book of hers is Dog Songs.
Love this. Thank you for sharing. I must buy a collection by her (after this and your recommendation on your writer/questions post).
