I thank God for my handicaps for, through them, I have found myself, my work, and my God. ~ Helen Keller
Helen Keller couldn't see, she couldn't hear, she couldn't speak. And yet....
It's finally dawned on me....that everything I went through...all that pain... the beatings and rape had purpose. I am thankful for all of it because:
-it taught me compassion for others
-It developed a rock solid inner strength in me, a result of fighting so hard to be free
-It gave me the ability to give hope to others who are still caught in the darkness
-It's made me grateful for everything I have...a huge contrast from where I was...
-But mostly...it's connected me to God who made the difference for me to walk free.
