Sharing Rumi

Thanks to my friend Diane for posting this tonight. It’s beautiful – and, as always, if something touches me I delight in sharing it 🙂

“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.” 

― Rumi

  1. Yes, it is so beautiful, Laurel, as Rumi so often is. Thanks for sharing and allow space for joy in your sorrow – and hope, which, I know, every day you pass on to others. XO ♥
