Lately my tears have been those of joy, hope, and thrilling love rather than pain.
Prais-ed be God, for it is not of my strength but entirely of His gift.
This time last year the tears were those of weeping with overwhelming pain, loss, and despair.
I'm ready for the new year. I'm ready for the change coming. I'm grateful for the change that's continuing.
I used to fear change.
This has been entirely good. Not entirely easy. But entirely good.
