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...
