The gift of suffering

It's easy enough to get people to nod their heads when you tell them that every setback can and should be seen as an opportunity. If you speak of holy suffering, however, you might get blank if not incredulous stares instead.

I got sick, underwent surgery, and both opportunities were taken: to address the ailment, and to learn from the experience and better take care of myself. Thanks be to God.
