Life in the rearview
(original post May 31,2015)
Random happening today as I was on trolling around on facebook…I stumbled upon a poem I wrote and then recorded on December 29, 2009. Here is a screenshot of what was happening in my life: I had kicked my ex-husband out, I moved in with my first ever and only roommate (at least one I wasn’t related to in some way and she was a little crazy) I was working full time with Estee Lauder and had just started going to school at night to become a massage therapist. It was a dark place for me and one I still look back at and wonder how in the world I survived it. It all came from a whisper I had heard all day in my head. I had been trying to figure out, do I move back to Canada? Do I go back to California? Do I go somewhere new? The whisper said “Blossom where you Stand my Daughter” How profound those words still are to me today. My life is so much better than it was then… it isn’t always easier but it is better. I have the love of an amazing man whom I can respect, trust and tell him that I love him too much. I have a secure roof over my head. A humbling and rewarding career. True friends that are also my family. A deeper relationship with my Father and Christ than I ever thought could be possible. As I say goodbye to the month of May… I look back at all I have lost but also remember just exactly how much I have gained.
Doctrine and Covenants 6:14
Verily, verily, I say unto thee blessed are thou for what thou hast done; for thou hast inquired of me, and behold, as often as thou hast inquired thou has received instruction of my Spirit. If it had not been so, thou wouldst not have come to the place where thou are at this time.
Thank you Father for guiding me… from that night to this. Let's keep rockin!
