Adversity


Difficult times are not much fun. Yet they can give you great and valuable insights into what's truly important.

There is much to be gained when times are good. There is even more to be gained when times are tough.

Resolve to persevere and grow stronger through whatever difficulties may come. For though the difficulties will eventually end, the treasures they compel you to create can often last a lifetime. ~~ Ralph Marston

My mother suffered much in her young life and I've had my share. However, we do feel the problems we've had to overcome made us stronger and more sympathetic to others. This post states the truth.

In times of trials and tribulations sometimes it is a challenge to view life as if the glass is half full and the rewards are often notable once one has had some time and distance from the sitaution.

Take care my friend. Keep your head up and keep on keeping on.

peace.

Wonderful post. Wonderful quote. We all have troubles in this life. But soon, we' will never cry again. No tears. No sadness. I can't wait!

Have a great week. And remember the reason for this season. I know you will. *waving*

It's ironic how we try to avoid the very things that empower us.
