This is the last paragraph of “Weathered,” an essay on my first blog. http://www.ellenolinger.wordpress.com/2013/07/09/weathered
Weathered. The beauty of age, the beauty that is given through simply living, and trying to do our best, one day at a time. My mother also taught me to let some days go, honoring the Mystery of Rest. One day when I was with her, and sharing about something, she kindly said, “Just watch the movie.”
