My universe has really been testing me this year. I thought I was finally in a place where I had learned how to forgive and move forward. I was happy and positive and looking forward to every day, in spite of certain things that were swirling around like vultures, waiting for me to give up and break down.
Then, bad news. Two days later, more bad news. And certain happenings reminded me of two things:
- The person/people you THINK you want/need to comfort you during these times; the one(s) who said they would be there, have your back no matter what, stay away - far, far away.
- The person/people you take for granted are there, every minute, every day, in contact, praying, hoping, comforting, providing shoulders for you to cry on, making sure you eat, making sure you are comfortable, making you laugh...
To all the RIGHT people in mine and my family's life -- we love you so much and are so thankful for your support and comfort during these difficult times.
