Call me sentimental, but I have a lot to be thankful for. I’ve come to a new appreciation of what I have. Recently, I’ve been asked a few times how my family is handling the situation, as if they might not be behind me, or might be disappointed in me. Thinking about it now, my family has always been behind me. It never even occurred to me that it could be otherwise. I am so grateful to have my family’s support no matter what, they have taught what unconditional love is. I know I’m young and I’m only beginning to learn this lesson, but I really have a rich and full life. There are so many people in my life whom I love, and who love me in return, this means so much more than having a wealth or physical strength. I know that what I see now is now all there is to see. God truly blesses through people.
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
-The Apostle Paul, 1 Corinthians 13:12
