This much I know ...
"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson"
My life is blessed.My life is full and overflowing with goodness and grace.I am surrounded,cared for and carried by a husband,children and friends who love me unconditionally,and I them.The events in our lives over of the last 3 plus years have not been a punishment for past transgressions,mistakes or sinfulness,as has been suggested to me as of late.I do not subscribe to that way of thinking or belief.Never have.Never will.God chose us,not because of some innate traits or characteristic we possessed that suggested we could walk this road with ease and grace,but rather chose us for reasons based on what we were lacking in our lives.In turn we have honored that gift bestowed upon us and have grown in spirit and faith.Are we perfect?Far from it.But we are indeed better.Better spouses,parents,children,siblings,friends and ultimately,human beings.
My life is blessed.This much I know.
