sucking it up, rolling with the punches, making lemonade

disappointed, discouraged, dejected

unfairness, brokenness, falling short

grit teeth, pound fists, give up

pain, sorrow, hopelessness

Who hasn't?


soothes, warms, girds

gives perspective

grants hope

feeds perseverance

reveals grace, generosity, joys taken for granted

filling, filling till overflowing

Beautifully and savagely written, Yat-Yee. May we all be filled with gratitude for the good we have despite the sorrows. It takes grace, indeed.

Thank you, Tricia. This wasn't the post I sat down to write but this is what came out.

Grace, and gratitude: maybe that's all I need.
