So, I couldn't help but respond to this one, Elizabeth!
Her question for the week.... "Have you ever lost something, and came out better for it?"
Pull on the heartstrings here!
I lost a husband, a friend, a companion. But, all be damned, if I didn't come out BETTER for it!! I lost my anger, I lost my frustrator (made that one up), I lost my cause of worry... I lost one of the worst parts of my life. And boy, does it feel good!!
I gained back my self esteem. I gained back my own hopes, dreams, and passions. I gained back the WANT to love, satisfy, and dream.
So yes, I HAVE lost something, but came out BETTER for it!
