I ask you right now to please agree with me that a scar is never ugly.
That is what the scar makers want us to think.
But you and I, we must make an agreement to defy them.
We must see all scars as beauty.
This will be our secret.
Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying.
A scar means I survived.

I actually read most of this book! I'll tell you after you finish why I didn't finish:)

Sweet Tricia, I was asked to pray for/with you by a mutual friend. I was looking through your blog and found this quote just one month before you lost your precious partner.
While the scars that are forming from the deep wounds in this valley of your journey are internal, I pray that as you humbly ascend out of this valley, you are comforted knowing that our Healer is bringing you to the victorious place of claiming, "I survived."
You're in my daily thoughts and prayers, sister.
