imageI love spring, but I hate spring.

I have this love hate relationship with this season……I love the sun, the warmth and the lovely blossoms ……but I hate what the season does to me: the itchy red eyes, constant sniffling and the persistent cough.

But that’s life….you do get the bad with the good, there are two sides to a coin.

Besides the dreaded hay fever, spring also brings back memories.  Just a chorus of an old familiar hymn; a smell of certain food can open a floodgate of memories both happy and sad.

As the saying goes “no pain no gain” and I certainly have collected a few precious nuggets along with growing pains.  I have definitely done some growing up in the past 11 years: from a mom, to a mother in law and now a grandmother.

So what wisdom have I attained along the way?

I learned not to spend time on the “should’ve, could’ve and would’ve”…..it is definitely a waste of time and energy.

I have learned  to choose the hill I am willing to die on for there are too many battles out there and I need to choose my cause wisely.

I have learned to love a little harder, hug a little tighter because you never know what will happen in the next moment.

I have learned that even I feel lonely sometimes I am never alone for He is with me all the time.

I have learned that life without him is miserable and life without Him is unthinkable and I am so thankful that He has promised to be with me for eternity.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified.. for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:16
