I reminded myself today of the gift of gratitude. Today was not a particularly easy day. In fact, it was difficult in many ways. When I reached the most difficult moment I prayed for the answer. What do I do to stop the hurt, what could I do? I stopped to wait for the answer. In that moment, that was all I could do. All I could do was wait for the answer. Of course, it came! When we sincerely ask, the answer always comes. Gratitude…..
The answer is be thankful and grateful for the moment, for the lesson, for the opportunity to hold the hurt, to understand that pain comes with life, but is does not consume us, it helps us to grow. When we have the ability to see that we have so much more to be thankful for and grateful for we can all the hurt spots to heal and grow…..
The most beautiful flowers need some rain to grow….
