This is such a crazy life; but one well worth living! It's amazing how life can change in a blink of an eye. One moment everything is fine and life is great! Then in just in a blink of an eye~ life as you once knew is changed...never to return to the state which it once was again. But yet we still move on...we adjust to a new way of living. We do the best we can to make it through our difficult times because we know that things will eventually look brighter. We have hope!
I've learned through my tough times is to NEVER take life for granted!! Life is too precious and it can all change way too quickly! Some may feel that the greatest things in life are going to exotic places and seeing amazing things; they are so wrong--life's greatest times are in the moments...the moments that we have with our family and loved ones. It is in the hugs that your children gave you on the way out the door, the smiles exchanged between you and your spouse as you pass each other in the hall, cuddling on the couch to watch a movie with your family, laughing together about your day as you are eating dinner together at the end of the day...things like these are going to be remembered and treasured throughout the years. Moments are what we treasure and remember and not a soul on earth can take these precious moments away from us.
No matter what difficulty we are facing we need to remember that there is a higher power than us that is in ultimate control of every aspect of our lives if we just let Him in! God has done some miraculous and amazing things in my life that leave me in awe of Him! And if the Most High can do all of this for me and my family He could do it for anybody...we are just ordinary people...nobody special...but very special in His eyes!! There is hope!
