March 30--Suffering

We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival.  --Winston Churchill

    None of us has to look far to see someone who has endured great suffering and persisted. There seems to be no end to the forms of suffering available to us. Likewise, there are infinite means of inspiration and survival. 
    Yesterday's installation of a new water heater has vastly improved my short-lived cranky mood. While the drama queen in me considers no hot water a suffering state, really, it is not. I do see my tendency to view as suffering what are really minor inconveniences. We can say we have suffered through the pandemic, but we have also found many means of inspiration and survival, even thriving, under vastly changed life circumstances. Humans truly are Churchill's quote in action. We are resilient!
    Time for a HOT shower! 👍👍
