I was prompted to write this after a friend that I admire greatly asked the question and I paraphrase, "What has been your best part of this year so far?" Of course she got a variety of answers but what surprised me that some could only think of something bad and it made me think surely no matter tumultuous there must have been friends that would rise to the occasion and at the very least an exercise of faith to show a spark of hope. I have learned that in a state of gratitude the good things grow and the others they fade away or at the very least become not so dominant.
Not sure the exact time and space that this attitude of terminal hope came upon me in my life but for whatever reason through prayer, quiet time with God, amazing people I have come to believe that there is good inherent in ALL things. I have learned that whatever state that I am in that is is what is meant to be to take me to the next level of my life. Simply I learned to praise God in the valley.
I love everyday in every way because if I am seeking that which is good I will find it in the worst of circumstances in every situation!!! The worst of times have shown me the greatest love of others and it has taught me the strength that can only come of that experience. So for me there is NEVER a bad day only different days with different ways to learn about love and its impact on me and my world and the lives of others!!! That is my truth and my day and my year in a nutshell and so it is.
