A thought for your day, with my good wishes to all and thinking of the thoughtful mum who approached me on the dance floor at a conference last month …

Each day holds a surprise.

But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us.

Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise,

whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy.

It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can

welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.

– Henri Nouwen
