the blessed burden

the blessed burden
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor
with unending gratitude to American Jewish World Service

through sharing pain over and over
emotions catch up. 

telling the story over and over 
furthers purpose 
and deepens ache. 

the blessed burden
doesn't drag down;
it renders every action cosmic.
