I didn't always Believe.
It's easy not to,
especially when you are handed
things beyond your control
that are very painful.

Things that happen out of your control
regardless of how hard you work
to keep it all together.
You have to make some
that most people don't understand
and most of those people,
make up their own stories about
instead of asking for the truth.
It's amazing to hear the story
when it comes back around to you.
My post isn't for sympathy.
No, it is NOT.
It's for those that cast judgement
and point and laugh at others
when they are down.
I don't believe in that and
I think it's a horrible way to live.
it's for those that are
going through that rough time.
You aren't alone.
Even if nobody is physically
standing by you,
you are not alone.
When you are stripped of
pretty much everything
but the clothes on your back,
you have no choice but to start believing.
If you are where we've been,
Keep the Faith.
I share this today because of
It really does all work out the way it's supposed to.
It makes you dig deeper and see the
only true things that are important.
One day soon, I will share our story.
But today, please believe in this....
Dear Amazing Girl,
Sometimes the bravest thing we ever have to do is accept a different answer to a wish, a dream, a hope or a prayer than the one we were
asking for, and trust that it is still going to work out o.k. in the end.
No one is immune from disappointments, and confusing turns of events, and things turning out waaaaaay different than we planned on. Our characters are built, our patience is grown, and our hearts are strengthened when these things happen . . . in ways that they could not have otherwise.
A lot of suffering can be passed by when we just TRUST that things are working out even when we can't see how it is possible. So many times, we have to travel through a "rough part of town" to get to the most beautiful parts and there is no other way but through those parts. If you are in one of the "rough" parts right now. Just keep moving. Soon you will see the places that you were headed to when you set off on this journey. If you stop now, you will be stuck exactly where you are.
Sooo, keep moving, friend. Keep your chin up, keep your thoughts in happy places. Keep believing, keep dreaming, keep hoping, keep wishing, keep
praying, and most importantly keep the faith. This is all headed somewhere good!
...for we've been through that part of
town and are just coming out
on the other side.
It's been a long drive, but now,
I can say it's been well worth it.
We've got two healthy, rambunctious
little boys about ready to turn 5
to prove it.
