“How’ve you been?” a friend decided to check on me yesterday.

“Why do you ask?”

“Cos I’ve just read you blog”

“Oh I see…”

I contemplated for a while.

“Well….pretty screwed I guess…….but life goes on”

For some strange reason, although our conversation was brief and nothing much was said besides that which was already up on the blog, I felt renewed strength to move on. Perhaps it comes from a sense of knowing that those struggles have been acknowleged, that gave me the release to move on, regardless of whether my condition improves. From this experience I learned that we can be an agent of God’s grace when we acknowledge one anothers pain. No need for further probing or words of wisdom.
