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.
