Today’s prompt got me to thinking about last night. I had dinner with my sisters, Mom, Aunt and a friend celebrating her 50th birthday. 2013 for her was, as she put it to us, a shit-year. She said that what got her through was her faith in God and the prayers of the women who joined her at the table. She’s stronger than she will ever know! She mentioned that this year, already better in so many ways than the last, she is focused on gratitude; sure that’s what will keep joy in her heart.
The other thought that came to mind when I read the prompt, was Oprah Winfrey. I don’t know if she still does this, but Oprah used to write a “What I Know for Sure” column in her magazine; it was always the last page. The page highlights some bit of wisdom or insight that Oprah “knew” from her life experience, and it appeared worthy to share with her readers. We each know “what we know for sure” to live each day.
It’s a curious thing, to know in your heart, right down to your toes, that something is true. The same beliefs that get us through difficult situations can bring us to untold levels of joy. The three things I know in my heart to be true.
1. Nothing is permanent except for the my faith in God.
2. My family loves me regardless of my failure or success.
3. I am a beloved daughter of the Father and NO ONE can take that from me.
