“Life is not meant to be easy, my child; but take courage: it can be delightful.”
I shared the first half of this quote in a post I recently published. Several of you replied informing me of the ending to this well-known phrase. I was very grateful and the words appeared before me at the perfect time, not only for myself, but also for a couple of my closest friends.
The three of us are currently walking a very significant path in our lives. Myself, I am carrying our third child after birthing my precious angel baby last year. Another has decided to find her birth mother and accept and embrace all that this journey brings. My other dear friend is tackling an enormous career change that will greatly impact her family and her future. My friends’ situations leave them at the mercy of other people. This can be a painful and stressful place to be.
