For so long, I asked God why am I the way I am?
Why do I feel so much?
Why am I so sensitive?
Why do I see things differently?
Why can’t I just be normal, like everyone else?
Why doesn’t anybody understand me?
Today, on the lake as I looked around.
I saw the bluest sky, with the most beautiful clouds.
I saw birds flying around looking for fish or trees to rest on.
I saw the most delicate lilies floating on top the surface.
The trees were magnificent, the sun was beaming, and the stillness was so peaceful.
If I didn’t have the eyes I have I wouldn’t have seen the beauty in everything around me, and
If I didn’t have the heart I have I wouldn’t have been able to appreciate it for what it is. A miracle. God’s creations are such a blessing. I am so grateful He created me for who I am.
I am grateful for my sensitivity, my compassion for people and living things, my heart that never skips a beat, and for making me the woman I am despite life’s obstacles. I can’t help, but smile and look around and just say thank You.
