The saying “It takes a VILLAGE…” can be said about many systems of nurturing. One I am especially familiar with is that of being a pain patient advocate. In this piece, you see the scars bourn on the ‘body’ of each heart surrounding the newly broken one in the center. When one’s body is damaged by injury and pain, the heart and soul breaks right along with it. Scars come with healing and restoration and TIME. It is after that time of being tended ourselves that we can then turn back around and offer help, advice, and love – those things that nurture and restore – to those who are broken… and we can walk the road of recovery together.
