You will be grateful.

You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful – or where you always wanted to be. You will realize that everything happened for a reason. You will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to.’

  1. Thais is such a powerful statement and so true. I married my high school sweetheart when I was just 19-years old. The first 5-years of our marriage I worked to put him through medical school. We had a a son during that time. I was pregnant at his graduation. He started his internship that summer and in the fall I went into labor 4-weeks prior to my due date. It was a difficult delivery as the baby was too large to come through the pelvic canal. The head came out, then it took 20-minutes to get the baby out. She weighed 8 lbs! Can’t imagine what it would have been like at full term! She died 2-hours after her birth. I was 24 and my husband was 26. We were too young to begin to understand how this was happening to us. I lost another baby at 24-weeks. I vowed never to get pregnant again. Several years later,I was on vacation and realized that I forgot, my birth control pills. When I got home, it was the 8th day, so I took 3 pills. At the end of the month I was pregnant! My son was born healthy and recently celebrated his 40th birthday. My husband finished his residency. After 12-years of marriage, he met a beautiful Red Cross worker at the hospital. He left me for her. I was devasted. Yesterday would have been our 50th wedding anniversary. I often wonder what my life would have been if we had stayed together. But I quickly realized that God puts people into our lives for a reason. Sometimes we have a long journey with them and sometimes we do not. My oldest son died in an accident when he was 19-years old. I have suffered so much in my life that has only made me stronger. But the one thing I have come to realize to be true is….treasure the time you have with those you love as you never know when the time with them will end.
