You have taught valuable lessons this week.
Through you, I have learned that I should just walk away from negative people.
They take too much from me, and leave me empty at the end of the day.
Without doing so, I leave my family empty and wanting me whole.
I looked for guidance, and you graciously sent me a stranger.
This stranger taught me that I was important in my life (of course You will always be first).
Not only have this person helped me get out of my funk, but he also helped me realize that I have to help me get out of my funk.
Thank you Lord for giving me the strength to be a living example for my daughter.
By showing my daughter a range of healthy emotions, she will learn that it is okay to feel sad, happy, or mad.
I look forward to the new week and all the new lessons you have to teach.
