That was beautiful and uplifting.

My husband had a terrible job, working for a family member, no less, who treated him like dirt and put us in financial jeopardy on purpose. Every day as I watched him get ready to go to a place that would no doubt be emotional torture because we had a new baby and needed to pay the bills I was overcome with gratitude and awe for the strength of character it took for him to do it day after day.

You are not wrong when you point out that many things that seem small actually take incredible strength and courage.

For some people just getting out of bed in the morning takes all the strength they have.

Never underestimate someone else’s burdens and the strength they have to carry them.

Thank you for that wonderful article.
