Thank you for the boulder in my path
that gives me perseverance, for
the person who hurts me that I may
learn forgiveness. Thank you for
those who come into my life and annoy
me; from them I learn compassion and patience.

I do not ask you t0 remove problems from
my life, but rather for the strength and
wisdom to learn from them, then to let them go.

  1. Loving your post and oh so true:)

  2. In my book about Fibromyalgia I wrote about it being like a huge boulder on my path and how I tried to climb over, it, squeeze around it and even dig under it. What a great visual this is.

    I wanted to be flippant and say “And the strength not to kill those that truly annoy me” and then I realized that it would be in poor taste. I am having a lousy day and violence has crossed my mind (I am a pacifist!)

    • I am too but there are days when primal screams and punching pillows helps a great deal! Don’t feel badly. It keeps you from ripping someone’s head off.LOL. And I will never tell as long as you don’t either..Blessings and healing to you my friend. I feel very close to you.

    Yes, and amen. Without the boulders we neglect to build the most important muscles: faith, strength, and hope.
