One week since brain surgery.
The scar at the back of Steven's head is healing well.
And my heart breaks for this sweet boy.
Healing the broken heart seems to be a process, just as when the body mends. And maybe we never heal to be the same people that we were before.
Maybe we heal stronger. Maybe we heal with more compassion. Maybe we heal with unimaginable courage.
Maybe when our spirit heals, we heal a little better than before.
So we must be patient.
But week by week, day by day and moment by moment we feel the determination and hope returning.
It is a process.
Seven time down, eight times up.
