I can identify with the character in this story. Life happens and it often happens in a cruel manner. Sometimes, if we are honest, we did a lot to encourage this fate; but most of the time, we are simply struggling through it.

For anyone that has lived through it, we find, like the person found here, that what didn't kill us, truly strenghtened us. At least that is how I see "God doesn't give us more than we can stand" for it is better to just think, "whatever happens to me, I can use for positive change in my life. The choice is always ours, to be thankful for the blessings and the curses (we grow the most then, don't we?!) or to become bitter. It would seem the character here chose to be thankful.

You have touched on an attitude that both blesses the one who expresses and the one who receives.
SOOOOOOOOOOooo true. I enjoyed this write.
