Pain Transforming

Just because we keep living does not mean we stop hurting. – Unknown Pain, sorrow, grief and all it entails feels boundless in the moment. Depths that know no end, and yet for most we trudge on. While time may “heal all wounds” we are blessed and cursed to remember. Since we can not erase […]
