On the Subject of Mountains and Valleys

So in one of the comments on my "lonely" blog someone brought up the subject of mountains and valleys. (thanks remod) I've been thinking a lot about that today and realize how incredibly true it is. Without the lows in life would we view the highs the same way?? If we never had any problems would we celebrate the victories or just take them as the status quo? If we never had lonely nights or broken hearts would we appreciate love when it found us? If the storms never came would we view the dawn with such wonder and appreciation? Probably not. All the things that make life special stem from all that was once wrong.....friendship cannot be truly appreciated unless you once had none.....health is often taken for granted until it is threatened by sickness....a relationship is often valued and protected and cherished more when you've been alone. So the lesson in all of this? It is often the hardest and most difficult periods in your life that lead to the most beautiful.....and that gives me the most precious emotion of all....HOPE.

I couldn't agree more. Your writing today has reminded me that no matter how slammed at work I've been the last two weeks, I have to stop and smell the roses! And yes, a big hug to you!

I'm hoping really hard right now. We'll see what the future holds.

Remod is a struggling poet....you are a full blown author! You have such a way of putting ideas on "paper". Very well written. And I agree, hope is the most precious emotion. It allows us to get through the tough times...and hopefully not repeat any of them as we learn and grow from our mistakes. Thanks for post. It came at a good time...
