I read this from a journal entry I wrote in January.
"What do I want in 2014? Life is filled with ups and downs, as 2013 proved. But the choice is riding a roller coaster that doesn’t go anywhere or a journey on a road with hills and valleys that leads to a destination. I’ve been on the roller coaster. I’d like to try the road that leads somewhere this year."
The key really is to know the ups and downs of life are a road leading somewhere. Life is a journey. Some roads are bumpier than others, but there's a destination. By destination, I mean purpose. That's the difference between a roller coaster and a road with hills and valleys. I'm so thankful God is opening my eyes to see a destination and a purpose in our loss. For each of us who mourn there IS a purpose individually tailored according to what God has for each of us. Don't despair.

Sharing the journey, because, I find there are so many others making the trek through life without a loved one
