There are some of us who *want* the small things in life. Things that make life better, a little more fun and put a smile your face. Then there are those of us who *want* the life changing things that put a smile on your heart…babies, true love and acceptance. When you can’t get the small things in life, you may feel sad for a moment, but you move on. But when you are denied the LIFE CHANGERS your head reels with questions: Why not me? What am I doing wrong? What is wrong with me? Why don’t I deserve it too? You see others EVERYWHERE who have the one thing that you feel you will never have. The cute couple holding hands and laughing, the mom who is cooing at her baby as she waits in line at the store, the group of people encouraging each other at the gym. Then you also see the people who have what you desire, but don’t appreciate it. The husband that has the loving wife who would do anything for him, but he ignores her; the parents that complain endlessly about having kids and would “give anything to just have a day away from them”; the girl who has a great group of friends, but she would rather be a part of the group of “cool kids” who don’t even know she exists. WHY!? Why can’t they see that you would give anything for what they have? Why do THEY get to have “it” when they don’t even appreciate it!? The answer isn’t in why they have it, but in what will happen when YOU get it. Because of them, when your prayers are answered, you will appreciate the beauty in the gift that you were given. You will cherish your blessing and hold it close – so close that you will never let it go. You will be grateful beyond words. You will know what it is like to TRULY want and not be able to HAVE. Because you fought for it, prayed for it and kept the faith until you got it you will know that it was worth the wait.
