The Greatest Hour
On my drive to clinicals, it took me through the country and I could not help notice the big oak tree in the picture down below. On the last day, I left a little earlier than usual so that I could stop and get a picture. I looked in my rear view mirror to see if there were any cars behind me so that I could pull to the right safely. It was then I noticed the sun rising up behind me. I loved how the road met the sun. It was quite a scene. I snapped the shutter button and then turned around to take a picture of the oak tree. I noticed how the sun shined on the tree and made it seem all the more grand.
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience by which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.”
In the end, some of your greatest pains become your greatest strengths. If only because... you went through it.
