I have also had some not-so-good things happen in May. I have done some damage that I'd rather not discuss. I have also lost a very loving part of my heart, my grandfather. My grandfather that bought me my very first tricycle and gave me the biggest, tightest hugs of all. I miss him very much, but I'm glad that he's at peace now. I once read a quote that read "If death did not exist, we would be begging for it". I cannot express how true that is. Many people would continue to be sick and in pain. In that aspect, I am thankful for death. R.I.P. grandfather, I miss you very much. I will see you someday. El Fatiha.
With both the good and bad, I have realized that my month of May sums up the entire existence of life. You want life to continue to go one route without any setbacks or failures, in order to achieve your goals. God's plan is to strengthen you and to show you life is not all happy and great. The down falls can also show as lessons. Looking back at the month of May, I am thankful. Thankful for all the ups and all the downs. I promise to continue to look up when I am down, but also be mindful as to why I am, where I am.
