Unforgettable

I remember when I used to pray and cry for the things that I now have. I didn’t know where they were coming from or when I’d get them, but I always knew who was going to give it to me. #blessed

I remember the numerous evictions and being homeless and staying in hotels. Now, I’m trying to decide if I want to stay in an apartment or just buy a house. #appreciative

I remember what it’s like to go to bed hungry, because of very little food or none at all. Now, my struggle is no longer not having anything to eat, but knowing when to stop! #grateful

I remember using an old shopping cart from the community grocery store to push our dirty clothes to the laundromat, down the street. Now, I just go to my room and push my hamper down the hall to the laundry room. #thankful

I remember not having any clothes to wear or re-washing the shirt I had worn just the previous day, so that I could have something to wear to school. Now, I stand in my closet for 30 minutes to an hour or so, thumbing through, trying to find something to wear (only to change again, and again and again). #options

I remember when I thought I’d never be able to talk about my struggles. Yet, here I am trying to help you get through yours. #hopeful

Although I’ve been through a lot, I will never take for granted what God has done for me and how far He has brought me. You’re struggling now, but very soon, you’ll be sharing your unforgettable story!

Until next time my NOTE takers!

Writefully yours,

Deetra La’Rue
