Sometimes life takes tricky turns.
The rug is pulled from beneath you.
You pour your heart and hours into something
That is then taken away from you.
The last two days have been an emotional roller coaster for my family and I.
Everything is going to be OK.
But after two restless nights, lots of anxiety and thought,
I come back to knowing I need to be grateful for what I do have.
I'm grateful for two healthy children.
I'm grateful for a loving and patient husband.
I'm grateful for all I've learned over the last 3 years.
I'm grateful I was given a new opportunity when many others were not.
We can't predict tomorrow.
We can't count on others all the time.
We can focus on what matters.
We can dream.
We can set goals.
We can wake up two hours earlier to work that much harder.
We can trust that it will one day pay off.
So here's to a new chapter.
Here's to dreaming.
Here's to hard work.
Here's to being grateful.
