To My Current Friends and All My New Ones!

In the depths of winter, I finally found there was in me an invincible summer.

- Albert Camus, author

Stepping closer to the light at the end of the tunnel

ME: A poem for my Spark Friends!

If I had not known pain,
I would not have found pleasure.

If I had not known meanness,
I would have not found kindness.

If I had not known obesity,
I would not have found Sparks.

If I had not known struggles,
I would not have found my friends.

It's hard to appreciate all the good in ones life sometimes. We take it for granted until something bad happens. We should wake up each morning and be thankful for the happiness we get and the struggles we endure that make us stronger. Thank you friends for making it an easier journey!

    I try to think of a couple things that I am grateful of each morning when I am walking to work. It starts my day on a positive note. emoticon

    You are so right!!! I began thinking in this way, and if I hadn't had ???? in my life, then the good would never had happened!!

    If you don't mind, Ruth, I would like to print this up for my boys to read! They can reflect on it and hopefully begin to look at things differently ~ Especially since it came from somebody else, not their CRAZY parents!!

    Have a fantastic day!
