“The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength in distress, and grows brave by reflection.”
[Thomas Paine]

In the late 1800’s, Margaret Fairless Barber became famous for her book of meditations, The Roadmender. “To look backward for a while is to refresh the eye, to restore it, and to render it the more fit for its prime function of looking forward.”

In meditation, may we see a future blessed by reflection.
