Yikes!!! Not pity pooy at all. That must be so hard to have chronic pain. I know I'd be under the covers as often as I could get away with. Hope there are meds or other treatments you can do to make it managable.
And S., YES it is good to be able to talk about these things, isn't it? I know I've needed this safe place.
Stumbling blocks - the road bumps in life that cause us to pause, slow down and evaluate where we are. Sometime they are the things God uses to force us to our knees, lift our hands and voice in prayer and reconnect with Him.
In that light, I suppose I should say - Thank God for Stumbling Blocks
Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.

If society prospers at the expense of the intangibles,
how can it be called progress?
