This morning, when I woke up, my eyes were still swollen from yesterday’s tears. Over the last few days, I seem to have done little of anything but that. At any moment of the day, I would burst into crying, unable to stop myself from wallowing in despair.
Today, however, I woke up to a gift of hope. I woke up to this.
It seems that our lives will never be destined for the easy and the benign. I should be used to it by now. I simply pray for the grace to accept my yoke without complaints and submit to the Lord’s will with all humility.
I will take these smiles and store them in my heart. I will need to keep remembering these to make me stronger and braver through the darkness ahead. I will keep reminding myself that today is another day. And with all your love and prayers, today, I am fearless.
A litany of thanks:
To Pei, Bogi, Lanie, Ron, Sharon, Joville, Ledz, Yo, Vanessa, Ails, Ivy, Santie, Candy, Cynthia, Geri, Ate Jeng, and the Baby Girls Rets and Boots- my deepest, sincerest thanks. You really are my angels. God bless you all.
