I Looked The Devil In His Eyes
The anniversary of the day my 1st husband nearly killed us and then vanished is a day that I can’t seem to forget. For a long time that day haunted me. How do you forget a day like that?
You can’t unfortunately. You can’t, thankfully.
That anniversary day was yesterday and although I remember it vividly, I will also never forget the day that I began to smile again. I am not who I used to be. That girl — although she survived —will never be the same. I looked the devil in the eyes and in the glaring reflection of my broken self, was a challenge.
Strength grows from weakness so whatever battle you are fighting, remember: If you aren’t able to smile, it is only because you aren’t able to YET.
“I want to make you happy, but first I want to make you strong.”
