Waves of gratitude and awe have been flooding over my body recently. The waves come unexpectedly and only last for a passing moment. This is a novel experience for me but one well received as this has been a hard year for me -- the hardest.
Some pain has been acute, however much of it is chronic. Pain always lurks -- I've accepted that it probably always will -- at least to some degree. But that's OK, pain is not our enemy.
