I awoke with no hope, as well. This is not me, I am always a glass half full, optimistic, look on the bright side kind of person. I didn't want to get out of bed, but my dear husband told me I had to, we still have a daughter. Slowly, I trudged through the morning with my brain in a fog, not sure of the direction the Lord would want me to go...As I was driving to work, I thought to myself, "What would Ann do?" Then before I finished that thought, I noticed the most spectacular sunrise...The kind that might take your breath away. And there was my gift from the Father. There is always hope through Him. No one can take away all of my freedoms. I am free to love and be loved. I am free to choose happiness and I am free to follow Him.
***I was not compensated for mentioning the book One Thousand Gifts.
I just like the book and wanted to share my thoughts on it.***
