I had a wonderful reminder today that the Lord uses all sorts of crosses to purify us, including those that don't feel like they should count as suffering. Not that we should take a "Woe is me" attitude, but that it's perfectly legitimate to recognize that we do carry certain crosses, and that they hurt more or less at various times (and it's okay to just acknowledge that you're hurting).
Thanks for a good cry, K. It was exactly what I needed. :)
