Gratitude

When you’re damaged, you learn to take what’s given to you and be grateful for it. You learn that love is not a game, and cherish it. You learn how to appreciate the smallest things people do for you.

Because when people have gone through wars that have left them broken, they understand how fragile life is. They understand how they must make the most of it. And most of all, they understand how important it is to always be kind.

  1. Beautiful post.

    This sentence.
    Because when people have gone through wars that have left them broken, they understand how fragile life is.

    Man…that is so true. It can also go so many ways really. Finding your way back from your war…your own brokenness…your own fragility…a much harder battle than the original war….

  2. Beautifully put CC and so very true. I’m so glad this spoke to you, as it did to me. It reminds me of another quote I adore-
    ‘The most beautiful people we have known 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 that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.’ -Elisbeth Kübler-Ross. Isn’t that something? So eloquently put.
