The discovery of a pasture within your soul, where everything is okay.”― C. JoyBell C.

I tried not to think about it, about all the sad things, because I had this feeling that if I started to think about it, that was all I would ever think of again. I often had a nightmare of falling down into a deep dark well that I could never climb out of. But then there was the other part of me that honestly believed I wasn’t sad at all, and I had little compassion for those who dwelled in sadness. Strange how that works. You would think that it would be the other way around.”― John Tuohy, No Time to Say Goodbye: A Memoir of a Life in Foster Care.
