Who You Have, Not What You Have 

I have been through every emotion in the past couple of months. Some of the worst times of my life ensued themselves upon me. As much as it hurt like hell it has taught me to be strong. One thing I know is you can’t do it alone. We aren’t made to handle life alone and no one should have to. 

I am fortune enough to have friends and family that have helped me through the bad times and laugh and smile with me through the good times. I could not be more grateful for this. If you don’t already have close friends in your circle, reach out and find them. When I had my worst days a friend reaching out asking how I was feeling means more that she could ever know. I try to be half as good of a friend as she has been to me. I look forward to new beginnings in my life and I can’t wait to share my happy moments with her. 

My family doesn’t realize how amazing they are either. I look forward to Saturday nights playing cards. It’s something I will always cherish and I take it all in. We lost a family member last year, we reminisce and keep her memory alive. I love this because sometimes we get busy and don’t play for a while but we always come back to it when we can. We get together, talk, laugh and there is nothing more precious than those moments.
