I love this thought from the Mathnawi of Jalalu’ddin Rumi translated by Reynold Nicholson quoted by Elder L. Todd Budge “Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.” I had such an amazing weekend, I am so proud of the man @ch0c0latedrizzel has become & the adversity he has overcome. It was special to be there for his wedding. I also went to the temple with some good friends & completed the temple work for my little brother who passed away a little over a year ago. I felt extremely close to him & I was filled with immense joy.
I hope that your sorrows are clearing the way for you to have greater joys & that you like my dear friend in this image will overcome adversity to bloom into the most beautiful version of yourself.
