In an effort to find Acceptance, I will take it as a Compliment

Hi God!

I know we don't talk much but I want you to know, I do believe. And I'm sorry about not going to church as frequently as I should. It's because I'll try harder. K?

So anyway, last year, you tested my strength. And I will admit that for a moment, I didn't like you very much. It was really shitty timing. But I guess with something like this, no time is a good time.


Here I am. accepting this gift from you as a compliment to the person I am and the strength I have. I must admit, you were right. I am one tough cookie! Stronger than I ever believed I could be.

Thank you.

Not for the actual 'gift', but for what the gift gave me...

- Stength

- Confidence

- Happiness (believe it or not)

- A Greater Appreciation for Life

- Real Friends

And so much more.

All I ask is that you take a little piece of everything you've given to me (minus the MS), and give it to the ones I love. And share my strength with the wonderful community of MS'ers I've met thus far, and also to those I will meet in the future.

Always remember He will not give us more than we can bear. Stay strong.
