    Amen! That which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger!

    A friend of mine the other day said she wished she could remove a pivotal moment from her past. I asked her what good things had happened since that moment. She named many and realized that several of her cherished blessings came as a direct result of that moment. She also decided the good out-weighed the bad. Sometimes all it takes is looking at things from a different perspective to see the challenge as a gift rather than a curse.
