Paraphrasing from a book and what I’ve heard at a meeting: Every no, makes room for a yes. Every delay fortifies our patience and allows for time to prepare and mature. Every physical setback forces us to rest and recover, building strength in other ways. Every weakness and temptation heightens are awareness of our need for others and a Higher Power. Every bout of loneliness and depression reminds us to love when we are able. Every embarrassment keeps our sense of humor intact. Every gaping hole of loss could be a window. Maybe every failure isn’t a failure at all, but a blessing in suspicious packaging!!! Gratitude.
