As I lay my head to rest and my soul to sleep I ponder upon what I am grateful for today. I want to consciously know. I just don't want to say. I want to feel. So, I ponder upon every moment of the day and wonder if I did all I could to make the best of it. I acknowledge to myself that at times I do feel stagnate and feel as though I cannot move or feel as though I am going nowhere. Lately, less than more. But, I catch myself and remind myself where I've been and where I am today. This takes me back to when I was there at horror's grip. My insides being torn apart. My innocence taken away. My life as I knew it fading away.
I think of how easily my soul could have grown bitter. How my heart could have grown to hate or even more so despise. But it didn't. It never did. I think back of how far I have come. How much I have survived. How much I have grown to learn and know of who I am. I am beautiful. I am in awe of all this love I have inside and how wonderful it feels! So much that at times it feels like my heart is going to burst!
Then, I realize I am loved! He loves me! He was always there with me! He is always here with me! I am grateful for my life. I am grateful for my loving heart. I am grateful for love. I am grateful I can love. I am grateful for ALL this love I still have inside! I am grateful I am loved!
Please do share with me what you are grateful for today?
Thank you :)
