This quote intrigued me because I know a lot of people, including myself, that have been wounded, but also have come to realize that recovery is our responsibility. Someone told me that our hardest times produce our greatest power and our greatest strength comes from our weakest moments. My life has taught me that our wounds can empower us if we look to the Atonement of Jesus Christ. In a few days, it will be ten years since my angel son Michael passed away which left me with indescribable pain. I needed the comfort only the Lord could provide and until this trial, I didn’t realize the true power of the Atonement. That is when it took on an even greater meaning to me and became an integral part of my healing. As my mother would say… ”We spend the last half of our lives fixing what the first half did to us!" 😉 When we are experiencing our most difficult times, when we feel we have nothing left inside, is when we can depend on the Savior the most. “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” ~Philippians 4:13 It was through the Atonement I was able to see I could either give power to what was paralyzing me in my grief, or I could allow that pain to build me into the person God knew I could be. Through the power of the Atonement He showed me I would be able to survive and in the process find out so much more. I know we have all been hurt by something in this world because hard times finds us all. Maybe a betrayal, illness, loss of a job, financial burdens, or being hurt by a very close friend. Maybe we’ve experienced a difficult divorce, an accident, or the estrangement of a child... these are trials the Lord allows us to experience because he cannot take the agency or choices away from others. But how we respond is OUR choice! Trying to see something good in our most challenging times might be the hardest thing we do, but remember God never said we were supposed to do it alone. He wants to take our pain away... let Him! It is my hope that you look to the Savior to find relief for your wounds and peace to your heart. He IS the answer! #HappySunday
In Michael's memory, the 60-year-old posted a quote that she said helped her in dealing with the death of her son. The quote went, "Your wound is probably not your fault, but your healing is your responsibility."
Despite being through a lot, the "Dancing With the Stars "alum is not letting anything stop her from glowing. Osmond recently spoke of how changing her hair and wearing wigs make her feel young and sexy.
