Q for struggle

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved."

Helen Keller

Do we have a choice? Oh for a little "ease and quiet"! Or perhaps a little boredom. Life hasn't given me these choices. It's not what happens to you, but how you respond that makes the difference. Someone prayed for happiness and God said, "I give you blessings. Happiness is up to you." For me, every day above the ground is a good day in spite of the stuff life throws at me.
