What I needed to comprehend in my life came in to me in many forms. It came through the choices I made. It slapped me in the face when I walked away. It brought tears to my eyes when I gave you back.

It comforted me in the form of a blonde haired toddler. It surprised me with the disappointment of those closest to me. It saddened me when I realized home was not where the heart lives. It motivated me when I realized I had to be better than they were.

It reminded me that you can only depend upon yourself. It encouraged me to stay the course. It made me become a protector of those with lesser means. It continues to teach me in every word  I express and receive.
