I once received a letter from a girl who composed the most loving poem to Hashem, full of hope and optimism, from the deepest and darkest of places. In it she wrote:

“Sometimes when you’re in a dark place, you think you’ve been buried, but you’ve actually been planted. You can be in the worst place in life and believe you are having more dirt and more dirt being thrown on your head, and you wonder to Hashem, ‘What are You doing? You are burying me so deep!’ The truth, though, is that He is planting you. You are a seed that is awaiting to grow.” ~ R’ Zecharia Wallerstein
