Choose Love

Every one of us gets through the tough times because somebody is there, standing in the gap to close it for us.” - Oprah Winfrey

I don't know about you, but I've  had several of these amazing people at different times in my life. These people they are there and probably don't even know thay they are changing your life for the better.  These amazing people that even years later, still hold a very special spot in your heart. I've had some present from birth, some from my childhood and even some that have came and gone. Each one had a purpose and helped me through some of my darkest days.
I have had the people that have always been with me, people like my parents, sibling, cousins and aunts. The ones that have always know me and loved me unconditional through it all. Some friends and family that came into my life by choice. I have a sister in law, that even before we were family, she would walk with me after all my counseling appointments just because she knew I needed someone to talk to. A teacher that listened to me and had an amazing way of understanding and making me feel loved. Friends that came along before I knew I had much to give back in return. A husband that chose to love me unconditionally and marry me even when I still had so many open wounds, that at the time had not been healed. I was very blessed to have so many people that loved me. God knew just who I needed and when I needed them. They all played an important role in helping me find my own worth. So remember, you never know what one person is facing and what trial they are currently enduring through. So give grace, love and two open ears to each other. You might just be that person,  the one that helps another person in finding and seeing their own worth and potential. It's not always an obvious thing, sometimes loving someone can be hard and not very fun, but loving someone is always worth it. I know, because I am forever grateful to the ones that have given love out so freely to me.
