"I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness and freedom of healing."
-C. Joy Bell C.

I forget in the midst of the pain that there is more.  Pain has a way of shouting above everything else.  It is the darkness and it is all consuming.  But the moment a beam of light touches the darkness, the pain, everything begins to change.  One begins to see.... and feel.  See the beauty and feel the tenderness and freedom.  I find it particularly hopeful that every dark experience has a light complement.
