Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 771 People

    Not being an ambitious person I can happily say

    I´m very thankful for everyone in my life... Starting with parents and family, following with friends in real life and of course, last but not least, my boyfriend... I don´t count possessions, just people, so yes, I am thankful and proud.....

    More than anything, I'm glad

    for the holy spirit with me and Jesus' love that he gave everything for us. It really takes some thinking to fully understand, but it has a beautiful irony of simplicity at the same time. It's more or less this, I sinned yesterday but I'm not guilty today, I'm not just...

    All of the Little, Simple Things.

    And it isn't a whole lot, either.  But, you know, I think it's a lot more than many people do have, so I'm looking at the glass as being half-full.  Bashing myself for what isn't right or what's missing never helped me in the past.  Rarely has being hard on myself...
