I see more of life when I encounter a hardship. While mourning, grieving, and spending the minutes of my days thinking of the things that happened beyond my control, I told myself that I must take a moment in solitude to be grateful of the things that are within my control.
So I am thankful…very thankful for all the things that I am blessed to have thus far. Everything else that I don’t have, yearn to have, or cannot have…I am still thankful that there is hope that keeps me looking forward to another day.
I might be still struggling to find the nearest shore, but I am not drowning. I am not.
And that in itself is a blessing!
