As I watched the tiny stones being pounded over repeatedly by the mineral-rich ocean water, I thought about how long they’ve survived there, season after season…storm after storm in their stable bed of wet sand. I thought about how those stones might change color or texture…develop cracks or chips but maintain their integrity no matter what. I thought about their resilience.
Then I thought about resilience as it applies to the human condition–as it applies to us! How much ‘stuff’ we get pounded with throughout our lifetime? How much ‘stuff’ washes up over us time and time again? And how we maintain strength and stability even in the face of adversity and struggle. Again, I thought about resilience, and how it’s inherent in all of us.
