Quote of the Day:
After a while I looked in the mirror and realized...WOW after all those hurts, scars, and bruises, after all of those trials, I really made it through. I did it. I survived that which was supposed to kill me. So I straightened my crown... and walked away like a boss.

Today has just been one of those days where things snowball right after the other and you cry over one thing and then everything else just makes you keep crying.
Or am I just crazy??
I got a fantastic bike ride in today that was a little different than my usual, but still AMAZING. I absolutely love Florida weather and the fact that it was in the 70s today :)
Came home and then read an article:
It was so simple and so true, and I teared up reading it. Some resonated more than others, but all are very much true.
Then of course following events earlier today, I talked to one of my best guy friends and he was just able to put a smile on my face that I was SO grateful for (cue some more tears).
I also got a message today from one of the ladies from my church that my family and I spent Thanksgiving with and it just made me so happy to read it.
I think now I'm realizing that the love that surrounds me each and every day from different people can get me through all of this. I don't know if I've ever appreciated it more than I do now at this point in my life.
Yes, for those of you wondering, I AM crying right now, but I don't think I'm hurting. It just feels like a wonderful release and realization of... many things.
But... I should probably stop that because... I DO have a date tonight and it's hard to look good with puffy eyes, right? :)
Much love to all of you my Spark family
There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world, because you realize there is so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.

No matter what, once in your life, someone will hurt you. That someone will take all that you are, and rip it into pieces and they won't even watch where the pieces land. But through the breakdown, you'll learn something about yourself. You'll learn that you're strong. And no matter how hard they destroy you, that you can conquer anyone.
