The box of darkness I was handed last year is on the floor empty. The contents are no longer scary. I can look at them one by one and be reminded of the lessons I have learned over the past year and a half. When I first opened that box I was overcome with darkness and sadness and I let it overtake my heart. I was in a dark place for many months. Today it is hard to believe how far I have come. I have grown in so many positive ways. I have wonderful people in my life. Some of these friends I gained throughout this process. I never dreamed I would have friends who would just come and sit with me on the couch or sleep next to me just so I could rest. One in particular has become a sister of my heart. I am so incredibly blessed. So universe thank you for this box of darkness.
