Sometimes life is so much bigger than you're ready for!

I'm not sure these quotes help very much, but I don't think they hurt either:

"When it rains, it pours."
"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."
"It's better to have loved and lost, then never have loved at all."
"No man is worth your tears, and when you find one that is, he won't make you cry."
"God never gives you more than you can handle."
"That which doesn't kill you will only make you stronger."

I'm sure there are more out there, but these were all I could muster. I have been absent from the blog world for quite a while, November 10th to be exact. I think that is because my life fell apart on November 13th; my birthday! 47 days later and I still lack the appropriate words of wisdom, a healthy view of what happened and the courage and strength to move forward.

There are things in life that dramatically alter the way you think and feel. Things that shake your very core and challenge your existence. Although I am healthy, alive, loved and sheltered I can't help but feel that I suffered a tragedy. I think the worst events are often those that have no real end, no final conclusion and drag on for longer then necessary, keeping the pain always at the forefront of your mind and life.

Through all the hurt, there are bright spots, happy moments, best friends, loving family and compassion. It is these things we have to hold on to and cherish because charm is deceptive, beauty is fleeting, and pain is temporary. Time will eventually heal the wounds of our heart and patience is the only way to get there.

I promise to try harder the next few weeks to post something inspiring, something crafty, something productive and something kind. I am ready to move forward and with the support of those around me I am positive that I can and will! So, if you have a moment I would ask for your words of advice and encouragement. Without truly knowing what I am going through it can feel like there is no way anything you say will bring me peace, but kind words and thoughtfulness often go further than you can imagine!

To everyone that has read my blog, has offered support, has pushed me forward, or pulled be back, thank you, I really couldn't do it without you!

God sends you down a path, this is only a curve in that path that will lead you somewhere wonderful. Keep your faith alive and concentrate on good things - the rest will come.

Just when we think we are at the end of our rope and can't take anymore, we amaze ourselves by digging our heals in, pulling ourselves up and brushing it all off.....We move on, we take big breathes and we go forward...because we know that things will get better because we are a good person and although our story is filled with dismay, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and our happiness is there and waiting for us. Chin up, happy days are coming again. Look for the good in everything and realize what you are suppose to be learning....and with god's love and the love of your family, which I am sure you have, you will get better and you will be happy again. We all will be thinking of you and we all love you....our thoughts and prayers are with you....
