Problems, challenges and heartaches come to all of us. No matter our circumstances or station in life.
There often seems more than we can cope with and it can be hard to find inner strength and peace to face them on a daily basis.
Lately, I have been touched by the trials many of my friends are facing.
Each seems to be tailor made to help them stretch and grow and to test
them on how they will deal with the problems they face. As I have
listened to their problems I have been amazed to see they have been able
to find happiness regardless of their 'outside' challenges. I have been
impressed with their great attitudes and ability to laugh even when
their 'spirits' are feeling down.
Often at home I feel I need to have everything 'just right' before I can
be happy and it has been wonderful to be reminded that happiness comes
from inside me and is a decision that I can make each day regardless of
what drama or challenges I face.
