Never say never. I have heard these words so many times... I am sure you have too.
Never say your kid would never do something, because chances are... your kid is going to do it! Know what I mean? Oh amen and amen and amen!
To the other side of the spectrum...
How many times have you seen a situation and said "Oh I could never make it if that happened to me, to my child...?" PLENTY is my answer!
At least it used to be my answer!
When we are left with no choice but to face the HARD STUFF in life, that we NEVER thought we could or would have to go through, we just do what we have to do to survive, to cope, to live, to love.
When the 'never will happen to me,' happens... you just learn to do what you have to do. You learn how to stand after a fall, you learn to rely on God's strength when you are weak, you learn to live by loving still... you learn to try over and over and over again and you learn it's okay to fail over and over and over again... you learn Forrest Gump was right... you never know what you are going to get... and you eat chocolate. (a lot of chocolate)
NEVER SAY NEVER.... NEVER sell yourself or God short on what HE can pull you through! NEVER SAY NEVER when God says You can do ALL things through HIS strength.
Do I wish things were different? Oh my mercy, yes!!! YES!!! But it happened... life happened, death happened & the 'never can make it through this' went away... far, far away... I AM MAKING IT THROUGH THIS... MOMENT BY MOMENT, DAY BY DAY.
You NEVER know what tomorrow holds, but rest assured, God does. And although you think you could NEVER make it through the unthinkable... believe me, YOU CAN!
I have... I am... and I NEVER SAY NEVER! (except I do say I will never wear ugly maw maw shoes) Please dear God...please don't ever make me wear ugly maw maw shoes~ amen.)
P.S. ~ The doctors said I WOULD NEVER WEAR high heels again...(gasp!)
|These are MY FEET in January! and I was totally rocking my Steve Madden's! Just sayin'!|
NEVER SAY NEVER!!!
