Thank You!

I owe much to my friends; but, all things considered, it strikes me that I owe even more to my enemies.  The real person springs life under a sting even better than under a caress.  ~André Gide

I saw this quote and it really struck home.  I have learned a lot about my family, my friends, and more importantly myself over the past several months.  It didn’t really sink in exactly how much I had learned until I saw this quote.

I have more strength than I ever thought I did.

I have a much larger web of support and network of friends and family than I realized.

I have an amazing husband (okay, I already knew that one).

Even though it’s not the exact life I want, I have SPRUNG TO LIFE under this sting I have experienced.

The future is uncertain, and that is okay with me because I am loved.  I am secure enough in my family, friends, and myself enough to know that no matter what the future brings, I will make it through.

And to all my family and friends who keep checking . . .


So, thank you to all of you – my friends, my family, and yes, even my non-fans because without you, I would not be learning so much about what a great person I am and what potential I have.

  1. You are an amazing woman Amy, hands down. I love reading your inspirations and thoughts…love you! This quote is a great one, and I too have learned volumes while still swimming. My life is far from perfect…but a beautiful work in progress layered with much love and laughter.

    Hugs to you my friend, Love Jenn
