Love, laugh with us as we remember we are not the only ones with cares, with troubles, with times where we reach exasperation and take the turn right after that into exhausted helplessness. Dissolve us not with tears then, but with laughter, with surprise at how we expected otherwise, and at our own indignation for the usual stuff that is part and parcel of the wonder and the joy and the goodness and the sweetness and the possibilities and the hopes and the dreams and the love that makes a good life. Love, laugh with us so that our hearts can open again and we are refreshed with a new perspective, ready to try a new dance, ready to give thanks for the blessings we have known and the blessings still to come, ready to hold each other in our exhausted helplessness and gather strength to love boldly once again. Remember ourselves to the way of love now and always. Amen.
