I wish I had something encouraging or profound to say. I read your confession and ached with recognition. You are not alone.

There are times in my life when my heart is strong and there have also been times when my heart has been fragile. During those rare times of strength I so desperately want to break off pieces of it to share with those I care about because I know what it feels like when the heart is wounded beyond repair.

Please take a piece of heart strength. I have plenty to spare. Add to it and pass it on when you no longer need it. The value of love lies in how much we are able to give it away. ❤
