You are beautiful, intelligent, adventurous, full of life, inspiring and my best year. I never in my wildest dream thought you would be like this. I think it’s because, in the beginning, I had a lot of pain and grief I was dealing with. Thank you for showing me that there is light at the end of the tunnel and though the road seems tough, I will get my dreams and enjoy the journey. You are amazing and I am so thankful for you. I still cannot believe how much I accomplished this year because you kept pushing me to be better, to dream more and not give up on my hope.
You have brought people in my life I would never have met if I didn’t go through what I went through. You are beautiful from the inside out. There are so many lessons you have taught me that I will forever treasure and pass to the next generations. You taught me that no matter how the situation may seem, I always have a choice and I should never lose my focus. You reminded me that when heaven is silent to my prayers and tears, God is working something good for me.
You also taught me to me patient and never ever sell myself short because I am worth every good thing I have prayed for. You reminded me that I am unique and deserve the best because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, an express image of God, I am His chosen one and His daughter. There are so many lessons that I have learnt that it would take a while to write all of them down. Thank you for being you!
Lesson 1: New Beginnings
I hated everything about this place, I never for once thought I would end up here again…. I cried for months and grieved the fact that I had lost my dream. The dream that took me years to nurture and I was almost at the finish line and then I was told to start afresh. I have never felt this heartbreak even my I thought I lost the love I wanted. This felt too much but then you showed me that with new beginnings comes new opportunities, new grace to begin again, new hope and dream, new expectations that I will still get to my finish line and most importantly new love that will refresh my soul. Thank you for reminding that although I started all over, God works everything out for the good of those who love him and are called according to His purpose; I’m grateful
