If there is one thing I can say about life it is that it will never take it easy on you. It gives you lessons and its up to you to learn from them and grow stronger and better or be a wimp and cower away from what you know you should do.
My daughter and I still struggle. She is doing better. I learned something about myself this last month. I am so much stronger than I ever thought I was. There were moments this last month where I just wanted to give up but I knew that I couldn't and somewhere inside of me I had to reach in and gather my strength. It surprised me then just how much I managed to grasp! Where did it all come from? It came from love. Love for my daughter and my desire for her to be well.
And in all of this madness and pain my daughter and I grew closer and we gained something very valuable out of it all. I'm sure there are many things that my daughter gained from this whole experience too but it may be awhile before she can fully grasp that. And she will continue to grow and to gain as she works through this and so will I.
Life sometimes throws you painful horrible things. When that happens you only have two options. Work through or wimp out. If you wimp out. You can bet your lucky stars that you will get this lesson again. Possibly in a different format but mark my words you will get it. Why tempt fate. Just get it over with and move on because sure enough it's only a matter of time before your next lesson begins!
