You never know who you are going to get to interact with in a day. For instance, a sweet lady was telling me about her upcoming trip. She was pretty excited, but a bit embarrassed about the appearance of her recent surgery. Skin cancer had been removed above her eye. I showed her my hand and the scar from the same. She had a hard time finding the mark that just so happens to be the same size as her scar. Sometimes it is encouraging to meet someone who knows and is now healed. A fresh wound, even if necessary, can look pretty terrible and is painful. At the time, it is hard to believe it won’t always be this way. Hope says to keep going, do what is beneficial for healing and be patient. And take time to be thankful for the daily gifts that are all around you, especially the ones that cross your path on an ordinary day.
