Adversity #HAWMC

Day 21 – Adversity
“The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.” – Mulan True or false? When do you bloom best? Today’s post was recommended by Christina of www.stickwithitsugar.com

peace lillyTrue!  Its amazing how far I've come in a life that I thought was going to be to hard to live.  Around every corner of my life has been some sort of conflict.  And after each one I have only come out stronger.

I made it though a childhood that was hell fueled by alcohol and abuse.  I am 13 years into a relationship that I wasn't even sure I deserved.  After years of infertility and loss, I am the mother of two beautiful boys.  And now I am living with a liver disease that very well could take my life. But I have 100% faith in my fight.  I know this too will be another mark on my path.  Because of it, I will only be stronger.

Through all the hardships I have come though, I know I am only stronger because of them.  If I had come from a privileged childhood, I don't think I would be able to handle the struggles I faced when I left home.  My two miscarriages were heartbreaking but have taught me to cherish my babies here with me today.  My  marriage has taught me to fight for what I believe in and that with love, all things are possible. Hows that for blooming!
