Kay Vandervort

  • At some point in our lives, we have to decide that everything makes sense or nothing does. If we decide to pick and choose what parts of life are real and loving and exclude everything that hurts or is more than we can understand, then we are going to live a very different life than if we put our arms around it all and find out what it is about by living it.
