Gift of Pain
"When God hands you a gift, he also hands you a whip; and the whip is intended solely for self-flagellation." True indeed. How many times are we given a talent, blessing, a gift yet it is never complete? There is always something painful involved in the success, happiness, and the gratification of that gift. It is sad to think, but it is similar to the saying "With all bad, comes good". Yes, and with all good comes bad. I am a little cynical, but I am not a pessimist. What I am a is a realist.
