#Microblog Mondays: What’s the point?

All too often, when women (women in particular, but maybe men too) find out that they will never have a child, they feel useless.

“What is the point of my life?” we ask ourselves, we ask each other. And we shake our heads in confusion and grief.

But then time passes, and we talk to others and they help us, and we heal and in turn our experiences of healing, and an infectious enthusiasm for the future, help others too.

"No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another."
Charles Dickens


  1. OHHHHH I LOVE this, because I could also relate to that question. LOVE the quote as well. The quote that helped me during that time was the quote about never underestimating the power of a mosquito.

  2. How lovely put! If only more people realised this...

  3. This is beautiful. And powerful. Thank you.

  4. Oh three cheers to that quote. Yes, every life has a purpose.

  5. Service and purpose are so interconnected, aren't they?
