At the start of yesterday’s CANZ (Celebrants Association of New Zealand) workshop we were introduced to a few lines from John O’Donohue’s A Morning Offering .
The last two verses were both an inspiration and a challenge for the day, and for life in general. *
Even before I was a celebrant I collected poems, readings and any other writing. Since I’ve become a celebrant I’ve become even more of an appreciator and collector.
When I got home I googled John O’Donohue which has enabled me to add some more wise words to my collection and for that I’m grateful.
