Not much to say today.
Just grateful to be well.
Thankful for my blessings.
Sometimes I think about how different my life is from what I once envisioned. Well, I suppose a better word choice would be “feared”. As a young adult I was filled with doubts and worries. I suppose some of that is simply a part of that phase of life. The early years of marriage, parenthood, and employment are all so stressful. Throw in a few serious problems, a tragedy or two, a financial crisis here and there, and it is easy to fall into the black hole of self-pity and despair. Some people never find their way back out. Thanks to my family and friends and the Lord, I did.
So I am grateful for this phase of life when I feel that I can face whatever happens next. I think the difference between now and my past is that I’ve learned two major lessons: 1. No matter what the situation or problem, if I am still alive there is hope. 2. I am not alone.
It takes a while to find your stride in life. However slow and stumbling, I think I have found mine.
