Life is a Pretty Word

Inspiration to mindfully live life to the fullest following, or perhaps because of, great personal loss, is the mission of the “life is a pretty word” site. Lena Rufus, Monica Sword’s deceased daughter, once scribbled “life is a pretty word” on a scrap of paper. Monica uses this sentiment every day, as a tribute to Lena, as a guiding force in her life, and as inspiration to others through her writing.
