Life can be good again

Get Well Soon! 

"Slowly, with many lost days, I come back to life.
I try to follow Dr. Aurelius' advice, just going through the motions,
amazed when one finally has meaning again.

"We seal the pages with salt water 
and promises to live well to make their deaths count.

"What I need is the dandelion in the spring.
The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction.
The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses.
That it can be good again."

- Katniss Everdeen, Mockingjay (Hunger Games 3)   

I call Heaven and Earth to witness against you today:
I place before you Life and Death, Blessing and Curse. 
Choose life so that you and your children will live. 
And love God, your God, listening obediently to Him, firmly embracing him. 
Oh yes, He is life itself, 
a long life settled on the soil that God, your God, promised to give your ancestors.
- Moses (Deuteronomy 30:19-20)
