The Gift of Pain`

In this traditional week of thanks, it’s not always easy for everyone to find gratitude. In fact, for some, there is a tendency for us to focus on the things we’ve lost.

For me, there is a nagging voice that tries to tell me to surround myself with the cloak of pity, to cower and hide in the dark. I ‘ve lost a life-long love to the world. I love lost both of my parents to death. I’ve lost friends to their own selfishness. Even my dog died. Sounds like a bad country song…

But when I focus on the loss, I miss out on the gain. And I must admit, I haven’t always seen clearly the gifts I’ve been given.

Wrote about the gain, through the pain and mentioned the book at:
