“Trials in life help us to grow by making us not only better persons than we were before but by making us stronger. The challenge to become a better version of yourself is not dwelling too long on your trials but rather, Focusing the good that lies ahead” ~ Etta D. Richards
I grew up hearing my grandparents and many in their age group speaking about Hurrican Besty, for them it was one of the worse hurricanes to have passed through the Bahamas during the 60s. They would speak about palm trees being snapped in half, massive flooding resulting in people being trapped in their homes for days. Here in Scotland they speak about Snowstorms and flooding, a few years ago I experienced one of those snowstorms and yes it was pretty bad, it snowed for what felt like forever, schools, businesses were forced to shut. But then it stopped snowing. In all that we’ve experienced many of us have persevered, we made it through because everything comes to an end and in the aftermath, we always look back on the storms, the floods with gratitude that we made it through.
