To have an abundance of whatever is important to you is what matters most. For me, it’s the knowledge of writing and knowing my craft top my list. Would I’ve ever thought that five and half years ago? Nope. I was in blissful unawareness that my life was about to be uprooted and changed forever because in three months I would loss my daughter. Three months after the loss I began to write on her dedication website. It was my outlet during a very hard time in my life as this has, and will always be, the greatest loss of my life.
I have an abundance of love for those in my life. Both family and my friends. These are the ones who will be there for you when you need them the most. You will be showered with their love and care as they want to help ease any burdens that go on, just as you would do for them in return. I know why part of the reason Keith and I got through that very hard time was because of the people who surrounded us. They blanketed us to make sure we were okay. We felt loved.
I have an abundance of thankfulness for where my life is today. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today if it hadn’t been for God carrying me when I needed Him the most. He gave me the strength to get through. I can now look back at the abundance of many blessing we received through the tragedy, and they make me smile.
Now, could I have become so angry at God that I turned away from Him. Absolutely, and I did, in fact, get angry at God. However, I never turned away. I may not have understood why He allowed my little girl to pass away, but I knew he had an abundance of love for me and that He would take care of me just like a Father should. The bottomline: I’m abundantly full because of God and what He has done with my life.
