Although this post deviates from the usual microscopic examination of paper as an organizing tool, it does deal with organizing principles at the macro level of our lives and so I hope you find it an acceptable addition to the current genre of this blog.
My DH often sends me links to heart-wrenching articles to inform my day. I think it's difficult for him to read them, and I would rather not read them myself, but I do as a way to bear witness with him. Yesterday he sent me a link to an article on the devastating earthquake in New Zealand.
He's not a morbid person. I think he reads these stories as a way of reinforcing fundamental characteristics which constantly inspire me. He has an acutely developed appreciation for all the good that is already a part of his life - his family, his/our health - and he rejects materialism as a source of satisfaction.
He has his priorities straight, his house is in order. The article he sent me yesterday reminded me of how important that is.
