I heard a song recently and one line particularly stuck with me. It said, "sometimes pain's the only way that we can learn."
Maybe that's true. I found my true self on April 6, 2009, lying flat on the floor sobbing for the life of my child.
But what if that hadn't happened? What if Hunter Syndrome were never part of our lives? Would I have continued on in my mediocre, "I'm a nice person and I know that God is there for me" life?
I hope not, but quite possibly.
If you, my dear and few readers, have not had a life-altering, what I call "Come to Jesus" event in your life, I hope it never takes that for you. And if you've had that event and it's not changed you, then I pray it will.
As the song notes, "You can never fall too hard, so fast, so far that you can't get back when you're lost. Where you are is never too late, so bad, so much that you can't change... who you are."
Thankful for that.
