do you know what is the very hardest part of rescue?

Alison  ·  Feb. 18, 2007

it is the knowing. knowing things that you don't want to know. bleeding inside and keeping it there. wanting so desperately to do something and there is nothing you can do, and feeling utterly sick deep down because you know what you know, and you don't want to know, but you do.

ignorance is bliss.



Ignorance is bliss, but according to Kahlil Gibran:
"... joy and sorrow are inseparable. . . together they come and when one sits alone with you . . . remember that the other is asleep upon your bed."

Yours is a hard, hard road, Carol, and I really wish there was something to say that would ease the doubt and grief and fear you face daily. There isn't.

Please be gentle with your own heart, as loving and forgiving of yourself as you are of the SAINTS.
