It’s amazing what one year can bring along in your life from trials, friendships, acquaintances, laughter, death, tears and how your faith gets tested on a daily basis.
What does taking a stand mean to you?
To me it means – choosing the hard truth over lies, where the road looks dim and curvy down the narrow path and you know that if you take this road it will be only you and it will be HARD.
Sound like something you’ve done before?
Something that I’ve learned this year is that when you take the road less traveled by, you’re going to learn a lot about people you’ve known for a long time, some you just met, you’re going to get kicked in the gut a lot and you’re going to have some true victories. I’ve been down the narrow road this past year and to be honest a situation I never thought I would find myself in by just helping out a friend in need. I’ve watched the situation evolve and it’s unreal to see the lies, the gloating, the name calling, the lies (did I say that twice, oops!) fabrication of the truth and how greed can overcome a person within a blink of an eye. If I even went into the situation you would think it’s a Lifetime movie so that is for another day BUT what I have learned is that no matter what comes your way, if you have your health, family, good friends, your faith and yes, a little wine then you’re doing awesome. The greed thing is what amazes me how people want and want, feel they can’t get enough or will trample over anyone to one up someone. I look at these people and I honestly don’t get it, they want and have everything in the world (according to them) and they look absolutely miserable. How the heck does that add up? You’re right it doesn’t…..
