There are times in our lives
When we think the world
Could never shock us again

We think we’ve endured every
Heartbreak
Ending
Sadness
Hurt
Resentment

Then comes another
Without forewarning
At full force
Into the hallow of our soul

We reel
We have no choice but
To wait

“This too shall pass”

Without the lowest of lows
Would we recognize the highs?

Those are words that could apply to so many life events, both globally and close to home. And so true, that we must endure and recognize the pain to truly appreciate the joy.

Yep. Life takes a few cheap shots at you when you're trying to walk a tightrope.

OMG Em. That totally just made me tear up. Really rings true at this juncture of my life. *sigh*
