To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on August 10, 2014 in Picture Quotes, Quote of the Day

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.’
~Tylor Ford

    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.
