|Ice covered Queen Anne's Lace|
But now I understand. The quote has immense value. I can't tell you the exact moment that I understood....I think there were many moments along the way...but perhaps the greatest lesson was learned through one of the most difficult parts of my life...within a short period of time...I had a newborn, my husband had a brain tumor removed and was recovering...then unexpectedly, my little brother died of a heart condition, of which we were unaware...I felt alone...and trapped. I woke up angry. I went to sleep angry. My thoughts during the day were full of anger at what life had delt. I remember the moment that I just threw up my hands and said,"Why?!" And somehow in that moment...I began to see what I had...I had life. I had a beautiful life. I had a beautiful life, which I chose not to see, because I was trapped in my own discontentment. But from that day...things began to change...or maybe it didn't, I can't really tell...I think it is more that I changed. So, sometimes, I do slip back into my old ways. But then I remember...and hope to never forget...I have a beautiful life....thank you!
