not as strong as me

Life is so twisted sometimes, giving us things we never even imagined could ever happen to us.  Some happy, some dreadfully painful.  It truly is amazing what the human spirit can endure.  I am living proof of that.  This time last year, I would have never dreamed I would have a six month old step daughter, born to a woman who tried to tear my family apart-along side with my confused & displaced husband.  This time two weeks ago, I would never have dreamed that my niece Savannah would be born & placed into our custody either.  Some tell me what a burden I bear, some tell me they just couldn't be as strong as me.  No one ever says, minus my beautiful daughter "what a blessing" "what blessings".  It is easy to frown upon someone for the choices they make.  I do not condone the behavior of this desperate woman or my lustful husband.  I merely do what I feel is right.  I always do what I feel is right, regardless of the evil going on around me.

I will walk away from every situation with my head held high, and not be ashamed of my actions.  Most people can't say that.  I feel blessed with these two girls, and I feel proud of myself for not caving and giving up when the devil was knocking at my door.

If you don't get that, that's okay.  Remember, you're not as "strong as me".

Oh, and just to make you smile-here is a photo of one of the blessings :)

My darling niece, Savannah Jewel, two weeks old.
