I come from a place of tranquility that flows from one day into the next. I have come to learn patience beyond my comprehension. The hard edges of me have been smoothed over with empathy and compassion. I have come to let go of my fears, as God walks by my side, giving me his hand when I stumble. I am grateful to have come to a place in my life where I can trust and love again.
I have come to know that friends can become your family and you are not defined by your birth family. I have accepted that I did the best I knew how as a parent and my children are their own persons. I come from a place where boundaries are not selfish but necessary. Listening to that little voice, that I used to shove aside, is always the right answer. I come from a place where asking for help is not a weakness. It allows others to be blessed by giving.
I come from a place of contentment and gratefulness for the journey that brought me here to today.
