weeps, weeps

We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.
-Kenji Miyazawa

I saw this quote and just thought about it for hours and wanted to share with my blogger friends.

That really is profound and needs to be remembered in painful times.

Shalom from one granny to another. Welcome to Jerusalem Hills.

"Embrace" pain? No, no. Call me chicken, but I will always act to mitigate pain. It is a necessary evil, but evil nonetheless. E. V. I. L. Pain is a consequence of, or an indicator that something is wrong. Admittedly, we can't avoid it altogether, and must learn to live with it, but you won't EVER find us hugging. Pain and me, that is. ;-)
