It began at the family level, this painful, excruciating moment in time.
The shell must crack, for the chick to emerge.
We see the birth.
We are aware of it’s miracle, it’s blessing and it’s accountability.
Then, too quickly, we forget that pain accompanies birth and that birth/renewal is always improvement.
In one lifetime, any person of any age can measure their progress …
and in the measuring, find that what was painful
and appeared "bad" because we see pain as "bad"
was the birth of something … Better.
Find the bundle of joy delivered to you on the doorstep of pain.
It was always there.
The gift is always there.
Count on it.
