Cranberry Raspberry Relish
This time of year, one cannot help but examine their life and think about all of the things that they are grateful for.
For me, I cannot help but think about how much change I have endured this year. Not only does my life look so differently now than it did a year ago but the truth is that I am so grateful for the way everything panned out…
Eight months ago when everything in my life fell apart, I had no clue that I would be sitting here, the happiest I have ever been. It’s not clear in the midst of great pain and change to believe that that time is preparing you for something good. But as I look back now, I am so grateful for each step that played out because each step led me to this couch. And if you could see to whom this couch belongs to, you would know exactly what I mean. (wink wink).
You just never know where life will take you. And when it seems like it has taken your world upside down, I can speak from experience and say, stick with it. You never know what (or who) it will bring to you…
