I love this word. A few years back a life long friend of mine was battling breast cancer and she used this particular word... A LOT! It was fascinating to me that even though she was the one going through such a difficult time, that she could make me feel better! I was trying to find a way to send her encouragement and I always ended up feeling comforted.
These days?... she's doing wonderful...
and I try to find the goodness in my minor obstacles!
