As time passed, the pain lessened, as well as the numbness to other sensations.
The point is, life happens, and along its course there are unexpected events - some good that bless our socks off, and unfortunately some that cause great pain and leave us temporarily in a broken state. Even though we'd all prefer only the good, the bad happens too and sometimes it's within the bad events that we learn best how to appreciate the blessings all the more.
Did you know that once a broken bone has healed, the scarring within it acts as a reinforcement and it becomes stronger than it was to begin with?? Interesting eh?
So then, don't forget to count your blessings daily and celebrate the good in life from the core of your heart of hearts.
As for the bad events, allow them to impart the wisdom that each experience has hidden within it, then also allow it to strengthen you.
A sign of life isn't only found in the laughter, sometimes it's within the pain. Sooo remember, as long as there's life,√v^√v^√♥ there's hope, even within the midst of the pain.
