I am willing to fall Because I have learned how to rise.
I craft Love from heartbreak, Compassion from shame, Grace from disappointment, Courage from failure.
I am among the brave and brokenhearted, and I am rising strong.

upon returning to my car, I found pennies littering the asphalt, hidden
among fallen leaves. Of course, I immediately stopped to pick them up,
and penny after penny I felt richer. By the end, I excitedly presented
them to a bored Lana exclaiming, "Lana, we have like 15 cents here! Do
you know what we can get with that?" She looked at me with that same, deadpan expression.
"You're right," I confessed, "not much at all." But I couldn't help a
smile returning to my face as I slipped those 15 pennies into my wallet,
feeling just a little bit richer. Thank you to whomever dropped all
those pennies. If it wasn't intentional, I'm sorry I didn't hunt you
down to return them. But like Lana implied, 15 cents isn't much. But
they made my day.
