“Bad things do happen how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.” – Walter Anderson
This is so true. Bad things always happen. Yesterday a very bad thing happened in my family. My 16-year-old nephew was killed in a car accident. It’s made me realize how much of a gift life is. I am devastatingly sad. I’m still in shock. I need to remember this is about more than me and my pain regarding this incident. My brother needs my support. I will give it to him wholeheartedly.
