The most beautiful people are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life and that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
– Elizabeth Kubler Ros
This makes me think of My Perfect Breakdown, A Calm Persistence, The Sky and Back, New Chances New Hope and so many more. You are all beautiful and once we are on the other side of this (and we will be somehow, someway) you will carry this beauty with you and instill it in your children.
