Enlarged

"The soul is elastic, like a balloon.
It can grow larger through suffering.
Loss can enlarge its capacity
for anger,
depression,
despair,
and anguish,
all natural and legitimate emotions
whenever we experience loss.
Once enlarged,
the soul is also capable of experiencing greater
joy, strength,
peace and love."
~ j. sittser

Tricia,
I can attest, alongside you, that what Sittser says here is true, It is oh so very true.
