Anyway, after several hours, the crisis was averted and all was well, but it opened my eyes, and my heart.
I thank God for the wonderful family I have. Oh yes, they drive me so nuts you’d think I live on the Autobahn. But they belong to me, so it’s all good. God also blessed me with the best, most wonderful friends a gal could ever have. They make me a better person when I spend time in their presence. They nurture me, they comfort me and they make my heart expand with love and appreciation.
We all need to love as much as humanly possible; love until it doesn’t hurt anymore and you’re not afraid to do anything. Trust with the knowledge that it will all work out. Nothing is forever. And yes, you are much stronger than you think.
Friendships are the most valuable things I have. They make me complete, honest and forgiving. They’ve forgiven me, blessed me, cussed me, and guided me. But mostly, they understand me, and that’s a real chore for anyone.
So, write those wonderful stories, and become that New York Times Bestselling Author, but don’t compromise who you are or what’s important to get there.
