Found this at my Grammy’s house today and just sat there and cried. Nothing is more perfect than this… Comes the Dawn: Veronica Shorfstall


"After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul. And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and company doesn’t mean security. And you begin to understand that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises. And you begin to accept your defeats with your head held high and your eyes open with the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child. And you learn to build your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans, and future has a way of falling down in mid-flight. After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure, that you really are strong, and you really do have worth. And you learn and learn…and you learn. With every goodbye you learn."
