I rember the blog post from when it was linked before but a quick Google search did not turn it up.

Yes that is it!

Even before I saw this thread I had been thinking that I needed to go find and read that again.

That is beautiful. And timely for me

Something I started saying when ds was on chemo to my children.
BITTER and BETTER have one letter difference but it is huge

When we focus on I (ourselves) we can become bitter.
When we focus on E (everyone else) we can become better.

BUT now I am not sure of that because in order to take care of others we have to take care of ourselves. I think drinking the bitter cup is a better analogy.

I like the analogy of digesting it and being done with it.
