Sometimes I get frustrated when there are those who’ve had a smooth beaver-cleaver life and they just don’t understand because they can’t.

Other times I hear people’s stories and I try to understand but their story doesn’t pierce my heart, I haven’t lived their situation.  I don’t fully understand because I can’t.

But even in that, there is one piece we can can lean on and it is the bridge that makes communication and mutual encouragement genuinely possible.  It is this:

We don’t have the same situations in life, but we do have the same Savior.
