Sunday Confessions: Resilient

Welcome to another Sunday Confessions!

This week's topic: 

My Sunday Confession this week?  I'm not sure that I am personally resilient anymore.  One day, a long time ago I may have been but now I'm not so sure.  

I've struggled with resilience.  And lately, the only thing that has spurred me on is seeing how resilient the people around me are. 

I could go into the details, but it doesn't feel right to write about other people's struggles even if their resilience inspires me to just keep pushing to bounce back. 

In the last 6 months I've watched people close to me try to spring back from struggles I've both known and struggles I've never had to deal with.  And they've handled it with as much grace as I've ever seen anyone muster.  But what really inspires me is when there is an ending to the struggle... there is joy, and that is what I'm holding on to.  That at the end of it all, if and when I bounce back....hopefully there will be joy.
