    Great read, I’ve learned some lessons in the midst of my pain. There are plenty of times where I just wallow in it and totally miss the mark. I hope those moments are few and far between. The lessons make me a better person for sure.

    Faith! What a powerful word. That’s a word my husband and I use often when in the midst of a storm. We simply say the word faith and nothing more and he and I know the rest will be taken care of. It’s a way to calm our thought life when we’re stressed to the max.

    We try not to let our past dictate our future. We learn from challenges faced and move forward.

    I’m starting to learn the lessons from my pain. I think my relationship with God has a lot to do with it. It was something I avoided for a long time, but it helps make things better. Thanks for sharing her story.
