She is mine–but where is the sun anyway?
Walking through life with chronic pain, being held back by the limits of tolerance and ability. Some days the pain wins and peace is found only in solice as the pain is replaced by warm droplets and hot steam swallowing my skin.

“You are not supposed to be happy all the time. Life hurts and it’s hard. Not because you’re doing it wrong, but because it hurts for everybody. Don’t avoid the pain. You need it. It’s meant for you. Be still with it, let it come, let it go, let it leave you wtih the fuel you’ll burn to get your work done on this earth.”
― Glennon Doyle, from the Book, Love Warrior
