Sweet Southern Comfort
"Most people measure life by the breaths they take, but I like to measure life by the moments that take my breath away. There are the moments that take my breath away and I feel like I am floating on cloud nine. Then there are the moments that take my breath away and I feel like I am drowning in pain and sorrow. We are all guilty of wanting to ignore the bad moments and pretend they do not exist, but we all know we cannot run from our mistakes or our life problems, therefore we have to learn to face them head on. My mama always told me "Daisy, life's always going to want to knock you down and tell you that you can't succeed. People you think you can trust are going to betray you, and everyone is not going to want what is best for you. There are going to be hard days and there are going to be easy days. Happy days and sad days. People are going to come and go out of your life and that is alright because when they leave they have fulfilled their purpose in your life. There was a lesson learned you may not know it now, but there was a lesson learned. Daisy know when to let go and when to hold on, choose your battles wisely, seek the Lord's help in everything you do, and finally sit back and enjoy the ride because it is a beautiful ride." Mama sure knew what she was talking about. It is funny how people will turn on you so quickly for a moment of glory, money, or actually anything, but they sure will come knock on your door when they need help. No, not everyone is bad and not everyone will betray you, and the Lord is helping me understand that. I have learned that this is only the beginning, there is always a mountain to climb and a lesson to learn. This is my life as Daisy McAllister and I am inviting you to join me on my beautiful ride.
