Do you remember the myth of the three fates? They spin threads together, creating a beautiful fabric. The fabric of our lives is composed of our relationships, those whose lives we have influenced, those who have infuenced our own.
Whether our fabric is beautiful or ugly is largely determined by the kinds of relationships we have spun. A life of greed and dishonesty will likely yield an uncomely fabric; a life of love and service will yield a fabric of untold beauty.
