Not Always Easy...

You need to spend time crawling alone through shadows
 to truly appreciate what it is to stand in the sun...

Everyday I appreciate what I have more and more, and the people in my life as well.
Talking to my mom today, I just once again realized that life sure is difficult 
and some have it so much worse than we do.  Even if we think we have 
it bad there are others out there facing much rougher times.  
What hurts and makes it even more real is when these
 are people you know and care for.

It is so easy to tell someone that everything is going to be Okay.  It is easy for us
 to also believe it is, because that is what we want to believe, but for the person facing 
these moments of despair NOTHING is ever going to be Okay for them.  Not
 for a long time.  Sometimes not ever.  And yes, I do know this for a fact.

I don't go to church, but I do have my beliefs.  I hear people saying that "God will take 
care of everything."  Sorry, but I don't believe that is the case because if it
 were so where the heck was he when I most needed him and where 
the heck is he when people I love most need him?

Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life...
