This year has been touch, difficult, and painful. The future is uncertain, clouded, and potentially tricky. The past is filled with a lingering touch that many are finding it hard to put behind them. There are many reasons to be discouraged. Your glass and mine is clearly less than full.
The scar on the right side of my head is not always visible to others. My hair covers the scar well. Yet, I always know it is there. The nerves are still finding their way back, so any touch is sensitive. My hearing is improving, yet the ever-present ring reminds me of what was. Surrounded by pain, chaos, and injustice, I have so much to be thankful for!
