Thanks for the encouragement, Damon. The pain does ensure I am still living. Funny you mention putting one foot in front of the other. That’s literally what I’ve told many people who’ve asked how I’m doing or what I’m doing. I’m very much reminded of this letter from Lewis’s Screwtape Letters while I slog through the proverbial troughs. My hope is that I’m being chiseled and become stronger and more resilient.
