A Happy and Thankful Life

The written word

I just finished reading The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani. It is a beautiful story and many parts spoke to me. The following passage connected with me for many different reasons but I wanted to share it.

“On this deathbed, Ciro realized he’d chosen Enza because she was strong alone; she didn’t need him, she wanted him. Enza had chosen Ciro, foresaking her own sense of security, which, he had come to know, was the need that drove her. Everything his wife did, and every decision she made, was about holding life together, and creating safety in a word where there was little.”

With that shared, I’m thankful for finding comfort again in the written word.
