Ok...so this is the real life. Not always pretty...not always fun.
We have to push on. Today I was reminded of how precious life is! A friend of mine is going through a rough time.....AND when I say a rough time You have NO idea. She's struggling to keep food in her own belly and the animals that rely on her. SHE DOES IT. Every day. I am one of those people that send her $$ to help her in her cause. I BELIEVE in her. I know in my deepest heart that what she is doing in her life is the ONE thing we all wish we could do. LIVE. Yes, live. She has found this balance of $$ versus HAVE TO. It's sort of amazing really. She always finds a way. Why? She believes in GOD or a Higher Power. Whatever works for you.
I have found in this life, that you have to believe in something. I choose to believe that GOOD prevails. Life tends to be pretty harsh mostly, and hurts most of the time. However, when I look at my friend and the trials she's encountered, I see a CHAMPION! She makes it happen! She survives! It's so amazing to me to see someone prevail! I love it!
Here is to ALL of us in the WLS world! WE are CHAMPIONS!!!! WE prevail!!! My friend is an inspiration to me. Find yours! If SHE can overcome the worlds adversities....so can I. Let's believe not only in ourselves..but each other.
Besides...what else is Christmas all about? Believe in YOU.
Happy Holidays...and Merry Christmas.
