This synchs well with my upcoming sermon on a good birth, a good life, and a good death. Thanks for your thoughts!

I can remember a conversation I had, that unbeknown to me at the time, would one day shape my entire attitude towards life and make some of the most painful and challenging and testing experiences that were yet to happen, bearable. And not just bearable, but valuable.
It was only 8 words in response to a question I posed to my mother, but I knew even at the time by the way the words struck me dumb that I had heard something that was significant and somehow, would shape me.

    Thank you for this, Kathleen. I also clicked on the Qualification:Pain link at the bottom of her blog and it was also very good to read. Thinking of you!

      Good advice, I thought, to think of life as rich. Also full and whole come to mind. Thanks for the note!
