Something happens in the mind and heart of a person who stares hell directly in the face yet is able to defeat it. Such a deep and raw beauty emerges. After such an experience, life carries with it a sweetness and a peace no matter what challenges may arise. I don't know that I can really explain this concept with words, it might simply have to be lived, but I think this quote does a pretty good job conveying the message. (I found the quote today on one of my favorite blogs, Apples for Poppy Anne - thank you Erin!)
I'm back from vacation and I have a lot of catching up to do. Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday....they really do keep getting sweeter and sweeter every year.
