happy anniversary to me!
A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he leads justice to victory. - Matthew 12:20
i want to tell you all of the fun things i did last week while my kids were gone but i was given pause earlier when i realized that it has been a year since my emotional breakdown. A YEAR.
a year since i gave myself up to the pain and trauma and loosened my tongue to truth. a year since i went on medication. a year since i had to set up emergency counseling. an entire freaking year since i could not pull myself out of bed, take care of my children, eat, sleep without screaming, or leave my house. it has been a year since love saved my life. so i am taking today to wish myself a happy anniversary and to pat myself on the back (a little), love my friends and family who helped me through (a lot), and Jesus (the most) who gave me courage and words of encouragement, strength, and understanding when i was at my darkest hour.
(oh and i shaved the sides of my head and love it)
