Thankful 30: Post 5 - Faith

Today I am thankful for my faith. Please do not mistake my meaning. I am not referring to religion. To me, faith is within every person. It allows us to believe things will come to pass regardless of uncertainty. It allows us to continue with our heads held high as we greet each new day.

I have faith in myself. I have faith in Doug. I have faith that our lives with be filled with love and happiness. I do not doubt we will have our times of struggle or pain but I have faith that we can weather each storm and come out to see the sun shining

I have faith in the future. Watching Keira grow, I can only imagine the woman she will become and consider all my hopes for her. I have faith that she will know the difference between wrong and right.

I have faith that most people are inherently good and are not out to cause harm, whether by statement or deed. I have faith that this describes the majority of the people I know. I have faith that unintentional hurts have the effort of a remedy.

I have faith in learning. That by striving to gain knowledge, we can become more of who we are meant to be. I have faith in experience and seeing the world. I have faith in imagination and in purple dragons.

I have faith in respect, courtesy and consideration and I have faith that those traits shall not disappear from our lives. I have faith in new beginnings and second chances. I have faith in hope; I have faith in love; and I have faith in life.
