Although I struggle in this new chapter of my life of being single, in addition to being a mother, I always have to tell myself, it could be worse.
I am thankful for each and every day.
It could be worse...I could not be blessed by the Almighty.
I am thankful I have a college education, including my masters degree.
It could be worse...I could be working a job that pays little without any benefits.
I appreciate the fact I have a job less than ten minutes away from my home.
It could be worse...I could have an hour commute and have to worry about picking up my son in case of an emergency.
I am thankful that I have a place I can call my own.
It could be worse...I could have to share my space, my belongings, my life with others.
I am grateful for the true friends I have.
It could be worse...I could have no friends at all.
I enjoy the life that I am living.
It could be worse...I could be resentful and unforgiving.
It has taken me nearly two years to make myself strong again. Although I am not completely there, I realize I am on my way. It could be worse.
