I was in a group of people Tuesday morning where we were talking about adversity and someone asked me how I have been able to cope with all of the adversity in my life. I said I do it through faith and a profound sense of gratitude.
That does not mean that I never wring my hands or gnash my teeth, because I am human and of course I do.
I choose not to talk about religion or politics on my blog. I will leave that to others, but I am very spiritual and I am filled with gratitude for each breath that I have been given to breathe each day. It is my family and the simple things in life that I will remember at the end of my life.
Yes, there have been many times when all I had to rely on was a leap of faith, but I have learned I can leap pretty far when I have to.
