Slight Consolation

Although we learn many lessons from our trials, they don't make us saints.  Nevertheless they change us, and give us an opportunity to think more deeply and feel more acutely than we otherwise would have.   At moments this doesn't seem like a blessing when our acute feelings are pain and anguish.  But sometimes I look at others with pity, who can not really taste the sweet because they haven't known the bitter.


  1. I really love this... it totally rings true for what I feel too...

    I wouldn't change what I've been through, horrific as it was, because it has shaped me to be the woman I am now.

    Thanks for the subtle reminder... ;)

  2. Thank you for blogging! It is such a help to know I'm not alone. hang in there!
