Janie went through shoulder surgery. That ordeal was followed by years of debilitating issues with her feet. She referred to her forced confinement as convalescence. "Now I'm out and about...reborn," she told me.
Difficult periods are times of rebirth - or they can be.
I see many people struggle to get back to where they were before the storms hit. I find the wise ones let the dark days transform them.
Transformed and reborn. I liked the old Janie. The new one is amazing.
