the path we walk isn't always easy. whoever said it would be, right? life can be a challenge to us all, to say the least. life is filled with highs and lows. hopefully, the highs far outweigh the lows but sometimes they don't and life feels impossible, overwhelming and more than we can handle.
have you ever felt like that?
this is one of those times for me. i want to it to pass. i know it will. time is a healer. i get impatient and i want the healing process to be done. i want it to pass at the blink of an eye. i want to be on the peak of the mountain, not in the valley but that would be boring and what would i gain or learn if i received instant gratification. how could i grow if i simply skipped over the most important part of the journey. i wouldn't!
through it all, i still manage to count my blessings and they are many. i find comfort in being grateful.
a few things i'm grateful for:
• my adorable niece and nephew in the above photo
• my family
• a home, food to fill my tummy and people who love me
• i was given today, and will appreciate tomorrow
• my health
• friendships and laughter
