Why?

A little bit ago I was talking with good friend who happens to not be particularly religious, about my religious beliefs.  I explained that despite all our frustration and heartbreak, I just knew that there was a reason for it and that God had a plan for us.  She was having a hard time understanding why in the world any higher power would want to cause pain to people who were trying to help others.  Even though I answered her with confidence at the time, “There is a reason, and some day it will become clear to me what that reason is”, it was a question that haunted me for some time.  In fact, this post has been written, re-written, and saved in my drafts for months. 

It took a lot of faith to get through this year, but through falling tears I can assure you that I was right.  I needed to experience that wait to fully appreciate the joy that now fills my life.  It was worth it.  It was all worth it.
