Okay, so maybe 30 years is not THAT old.
But it is plenty of time in which to have a bad day or lose one’s mind.
And in not going off the deep end, I give credit to my God, my husband Dave, my Momma and my cats.
And my collection of peace-giving words of wisdom.
In times of trial, I always pull out at least one of these truths and hang on to it for dear life:
“This, too, shall pass.”
“Where God closes a door, somewhere He opens a window.”
“It is what it is.”
“I am loved.”
“His mercies are new every morning.”
“Do what you can, and forget the rest.”
“Live in the moment.”
“To everything, there is a season.”
“When all of this is over, I am eating the biggest damn cinnamon roll I can find!”
As I get older, I find that I can access peace quicker and hang on to it longer…with a little help from my friends.
