"What greater thing is there for human souls
than to feel that they are joined for life."
I find that even in my darkest moments there is always a light.
A light that comes from the unquestionable fact that there is always something to be thankful for.
I struggle with this from time to time especially when I feel myself receding into the dark places my mind sometimes takes me, but eventually this truth always wins.
It's hard to feel sad or sorry for yourself when you focus on your blessings.
These two are mine: my blue eyed boy and my hazel eyed girl.
The only two people in this world who show me day in and day out what unconditional love looks like.
In her eyes, I am a hero. I can do no wrong. I am beautiful. I am smart. I am the world's best problem solver. I am a soft place-her favorite place to land.
In his eyes, I am strong and fearless. I am beautiful, sexy, and wise beyond my years. I am encouraging, honest, and fun.
And as I glimpse in the mirror, I wonder why the girl whom these two love so much is so hard for me to see sometimes? Because according to them, she right here.
She's always been here.
She hasn't gone anywhere.
And they always find a way to remind me of that.
So today I am thankful for them.
For the way they pull me back and give me a reason to keep going.
For the way they remind me every single day that I have been called to a higher calling.
And that is the only calling that matters.
