30 Days of Truth - Day 07

Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.

Well I'm a mom so can you figure out the answer to this question? My kids...they make my life worth living.

My parents made my life worth living for. Their love, and faith in each and everyone of us kids was more than any one child could ever ask for.

Between my kids and my parents they are my whole reason for living. Without a single one of them, I wouldn't be the person I am today. They have all at one point or another saved my life.

My parents never gave up on me. It didn't matter what wrong I did, they never gave up hope that I would become a better person. Because of them I never gave up on myself.

Then there was the partying life style I had as a teen, never caring about another person, or how they felt, or the impact my actions may have had on them. Then I held my daughter for the first time and I realized everything I do will impact her life. She saved me.

My son...when I was 10 weeks pregnant w/ him the Dr told me I had cancer. He urged me to have an abortion saying that the hormones can make cancer spread. Not me, I was not going to take this childs life before it had a chance to live it. I chose to carry him. I had my son in November, a few weeks later I was taking care of the cancer. I knew he had saved me...if I wouldn't have gotten pregnant I would have never gone to the Dr's.

They make my life worth living, they make every breath worth taking.
