SOL Day Three: Waiting for the Last Shoe to Fall

I’ve had my fair share of adversity in life-nothing of epic proportions but enough to know the difference between a mountain and a mole hill.  And I have always stood firm in the belief that “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” and “it builds character.”

But when I met my husband and his wonderful family, joined their tree, and extended it by a branch with the birth of my daughter I felt blessed.  I also held my breathe waiting for life to throw me a metaphorical baseball right through my glistening window with a view.

Today I got a phone call that brought the bucket of balls right to my front steps.  It was a shock.  One of my first thoughts being “I knew it couldn’t be this good forever.”  But I took a deep breathe and reminded myself thay I’ll rally the troops, take one day at a time and hold the hope that this will end with just a small smudge left on the glass.

  1. Your figurative language is beautiful! I loved “I’ve had my fair share of adversity in life-nothing of epic proportions but enough to know the difference between a mountain and a mole hill.” I pray for peace for you!
