This is exactly what I believe. Having gone through a very difficult time (due to some intense family trauma), I now feel grateful for it. I have grown from it, I have learned to love better and I have learned to empathize with the suffering. The ancients were right indeed. Love your blog.

Every one of her books is a masterpiece. I read them all slowly, and pondered as I went. Thanks for sharing this today.

So it’s always nice to stop, breath deeply and read something so special. Doundt and sorrow can be good things in our lives if we know how to look, and trust God. Thank you.

She aptly knew that was silly, but was surprised at how instead of cancer being something we “go through” cancer is often seen as a battle we have the power to “win.”

I am inspired by her faith in and love for the human experience. Love and hope and faith are far stronger than their opposites. It’s good that we’re learning to be more open and accepting and sharing . We begin to understand the complexities and wonders and miracles and sorrows of mortality. We understand best what we personally experience. Love you, darling!

Job loss can be devastating. Thinking about you and rooting for you in your next steps.

Marilynne’s quote is awe-inspiring. I’m so happy it helped.
