All of these “throwback Thursday” photos floating around the internet give me little trips down memory lane. I really do love it, but now that I have dug through my mother’s old photos of me, I’m thinking I’ll pass on posting any of them. For someone who hasn’t hesitated to post my bald photos from my chemo days, it’s pretty shocking that I refuse to post photos of my childhood haircuts. Haha. Oh, and let’s not forget the bifocals I had to start wearing at age 4. I always feel proud of the fact that I am NOT in bifocals. I’m sure they are somewhere in my future, but not yet. 🙂
Some trips down memory lane are more painful than others. Despite that, memories of past trials, even memories of past pain, fill me today with gratitude. Were it not for the steps on this journey, pain included, I know I would not be here today.
So, today, in my way, I invite you to stop and say “thank you” for those moments that have pushed you to your limits. No matter how hard our pasts may have been, every trial is a gift.

Love and blessings to you all…
