The Wisdom of Youth | maryryan's Blog

A friend's son said this a number of years ago (he was actually pretty little then).  I keep a handwritten copy of it next to my desk and look at it when I need a little perspective:

"Sometimes we are sorted and sometimes we are not,
Sometimes we are broken and sometimes we are fixed"

This helps my friend and I remember that all things shall pass and we're likely holding up better than we think we are during difficult times.
