With spring finally making its arrival, our garden planted, and my small human almost on summer break, I have been spending my time reflecting over the past few years. I know that I have shared a lot of the negative things that have happened, but now, I would like to share a few positives.
Over the past year I have found a way to slowly come out of my “shell”. Y’all, this took a lot of work and faith. I am trying to spend more time doing the things that I still enjoy. I have started my garden again, I want to journal more, and even experiment with creating new recipes.
God has been reminding me that I still have a full life to live. I stayed in such a dark place for so long, that I forgot who I was. I have been reminded that I am a daughter, sister, mother, and now, a wife again.
I have been very blessed to have been led to a wonderful man, who accepts me just as I am. Does this mean that I think of, or love my late husband any less? Never. My husband now, understands that my first husband and my daughter will always be a part of me, a part of my life.
I am hoping to continue to be able to encourage others through this outlet. I hope everyone who reads this will take a look at all the blessings in their lives. Even the smallest ones can create something big. Always be grateful, even when life feels that it is falling apart. Much love.
“For I know the plans that I have for you, ‘declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NASB
