There's a catchy little country tune doing the charts and the words are really interesting. A guy and a girl from school meet several years later and recount their various relationship tales. The words of the chorus caught my attention; “these bruises make for better conversation.”
That got me thinking. What in the world would we ever chatter about if life was simply perfect. Boys would find no need to go on those boring fishing trips and us girls, well the chatter would be rather dull.
It is precisely life's trials and tribulations that force us to develop relationships with friends and loved ones so that we can get the love, nurturing and support we need. So next time you have the wonderful opportunity to spend time with those near and dear, recounting life's tales, thank God for the blessing of support that we get from those near and dear to us.
