“The single greatest thing you can do to change your life today would be to start being grateful for what you have right now. And the more grateful you are, the more you get.” – Oprah
As I sit here pondering Oprah’s quote I can’t help but think back over the past four years and see the many blessings that have come my way since my daughter’s death. I think a person needs to be able to have great faith to see that and to believe that life can still have meaning after such loss.
I’m a fighter and I always get back up and dust myself off and take another step in faith that God has my back. He has up till now and I have every bit of faith that He will continue to. The problem is always me. I get in the way of my own recovery, my own journey because of my human nature to disbelieve.
To believe that life has handed me so many hurts and sorrows how could life have any meaning left for me. It would be so easy for me to give up to stop believing to stop living. But my faith is so much stronger than my disbelief.
And that my friends is where it begins and ends. So today I am thankful for my faith, for it has carried me this far.
until next time
