inspired week 53.

 "For our hearts are not pure; our hearts are filled with need and greed as much as with love and grace, and we wrestle with our hearts all the time. The wrestling is who we are. How we wrestle is who we are. What we want to be is never what we are. Not yet. Maybe that's why we have these relentless engines in our chests, driving us toward what we might be."

- Brian Doyle

Brilliant quote. I wrote about my wrestling today and then read this quote and shouted a resounding, "YES!".

And that little girl...well....that's just adorable.
