December 17 – Lesson Learned What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward? (Author: Tara Weaver)
I can do it.
Me and Rosie the Riveter. And a couple dozen close friends.
I can do things I didn't think I could. I can stand up when I want to lie down with the covers over my head. I can smile when I want to scream. I can walk ahead.
If you'd asked me before this year, I'd have said I could do all those things. But this year presented some specific challenges that I'd never anticipated, and I had to step up in ways I never knew would be presented to me. I guess that's how life goes, right?
Going forward...my life will include even more challenges and changes. I have some that I am aware of. And, oh, I bet there are some surprises out there, too.
I want to hold on to the awareness of this strength, some of which came from me and from God, and much of which came from the loving support of friends. Without you, I'm nothing.
