    Beautifully written post. I definitely think its great to “get away” every once in a while and reflect.For me, I do struggle with it but I have definitely gotten better when feeling discouraged.

  2. In the seventies, we had a saying–‘grock with it’, which meant allow yourself all the time you need to recover before springing back again.
    That’s what I’m facing. My husband’s cancer is gradually weakening him. I’m steadfast to support his suffering at the moment. But preparing for a time when I’ll mourn his passing. Unthinkable, but I must do it, knowing death is just a change of form.

  6. Brokenness as something good is not something I have ever pondered. To me, something broken can rarely be put together again in the same way. Perhaps that is the point – that through brokenness, things reform into ways you never would have expected. This is something I will have to think about.

  7. I also express my thoughts about this with my fave quote in life that goes, “Experience is the best teacher, she give the test first the lesson afterwards”.We cannot escape hearing and seeing brokenness in this world and we are reminded daily that as humans we are more fragile that we would want to admit, and are exposed to being broken on a daily basis or breaking others; be it directly or indirectly.
