A survivor

I am thankful that my husband and I are together,

God knows, how many times I wanted to break free and threw everything away;

I am thankful that my life is filled with fleeting moments of joy,

It lights up the heaviness of an endless grieving;

I am thankful that I have accepted unknown,

Someday, I will know where this awkward life will lead;

I am thankful that I have loving parents,

In their eyes, I am always the perfect child;

I am thankful for the wonderful friendships,

Their kindness saved me from drowning in a pool of tears;

I am thankful that I connected to the blog world,

It is a sanctuary to harbor my broken heart;

I am thankful that I did not give up living,

With or without a child, I want to live THIS life.

I am a survivor.
