It takes faith. It will get better. You are doing great! This is not the end. God won’t give you more than you can handle.

Any of that sound familiar? I have heard it all and all too much. Life hurts. But life is happy and joyous with excitement and blessings. Life has so many corners and different paths to take. I have to wonder how I ended up here and you ended up there.

For me it comes down to one word. Strong. It doesnt seem to matter what is thrown at my path, I will make it through. I dont know how when I’m going through the thick of it all and I dont understand it when i look back on the walk. What I do know is that somehow, time and again, I prevail. Through the pain, through the hurt, through the tears and through the devastation.

I have found out how strong I am and just when I think I have made it, I find yet another canyon that has to be crawled through. I am grateful that I was given spirit for life. I am so proud of all that has been accomplished in my life, yet at the same time,  I desperately want to be at a place of peace and rest. I want to enjoy the fruits of my labor and see smiling faces with laughter as the centerpiece.

I get that I am strong. I am glad that I am strong. I have needed this strength my entire life and I doubt that will change. But I yearn for the day of rest. For me, I was given a gift and a curse. I have survived and I will continue to survive. But sometimes strength is the last thing I want to need.
