Gratitude

The past month has been the second hardest time in my entire life. I feel like I need to express my feelings in a very discrete manner but express them none the less. I need a chance to heal and writing is a way for me to do that. This is something that has been brought on by someone else wrong doing, which makes it all the more difficult. Neither one of us were prepared for how someones bad choices can effect us.
I am so grateful for personal revelation and of guidance from the spirit in my life. I have been blessed by the Savior in allowing me to grow and heal from this. I am often torn as to how I should feel about all of this but I am beggining to see the light and to feel less anger and more forgivness. I feel such betrayel and pain from someone else actions. I will never underestiamte the power of ones agency. I will remeber that my life choices effect so many and I will strive to be conscise of this in my daily life.
My dearest and most trusted friends and loved ones have been a constant support when I could not continue on. I love being able to know that when I fall someone will be able to support me and pick me up. Thank You.
John I am amazed at the man that you are and how you see the world in such a beautiful way. I love you and thank you for keeping our home safe and full of peace.

"Life often feels like a great pile of obligations, frustrations, and disappointments. But the Lord is there, always the same, His arms still outstretched. When we feel overwhelmed, we have to remember the peace He has spoken to us on previous occasions. His peace brings comfort and strength; the world cannot give that to us."

I am sorry you are going through such a rough time right now. I hope things start looking up and that you feel the support you need and deserve. Your family will be in my prayers :)

It sounds as though you are putting your strength in the right source. I feel that you are drawing on the powers of Heaven. I hope that you find the wisdom and understanding that you may need. Take Care Sara.

Oh Sara, I'm so sorry you're going through such a rough time. I struggled for a long time understanding the Atonement and how it applies to "fixing" something someone else's agency had done and how it had affected me, but when that understanding came the peace was immeasurable. I hope you can find that peace, too. If you ever need anything, don't hesitate to call.

You are going about this with completely the right attitude. You recognize that Heavenly Father is near and willing to help heal. I pray that peace comes quickly.

Don't under estimate how strong you are in this whole ordeal. You have a level head on your shoulders and continue to amaze me. It has not been easy for you to say the least and as much as I know, I feel like you have been tremendous through it all for your entire family.
You understand your limits, what you need, and where you need to draw it from. That alone, says a lot about you. Hang in there lady, and please let me know where I can help.
