Friday.

November was a pretty great month until two days ago. Then it felt like obstacles were popping up put of everywhere and nowhere. I think the hardest part has been dealing with the end of a journey my family has been involved with and dealing with the fact that there is no resolution. It is a bit easier to deal with on a Friday, though.

Hope.

I think I have faced some of my greatest challenges as an adult in my 20s and now in my mid 40s. They are the kinds of situations where life must change drastically as a result. It is uncomfortable to say the least, but I will not give up.

Faith.

I have been blessed to have witnessed the existence and practice and maintenance of great faith. When I was younger it was a consequence of my circumstances. When I began to grow up, I started to seek it for myself.

Now all I have to do is continually strive to live it out in the midst of my vast imperfections. In a world full of other flawed individuals. That’s all.

Forgiveness.

The great thing about forgiveness, to me is the more I receive, the more I want to share it with others. I am sorry that it has taken me the greatest amount of time and effort to learn to forgive myself, but I am thankful that it is possible and becoming easier with time.
