- When my mom left when i was 3, i was miserable for 8 years of my life . I had always asked The Lord for a family. Well I met her when i was 12; all i had to do was wait until God thought it was the right time for me. Now we're closer than ever.

- I was in a serious car accident. My recovery was a lot of work, and I still have scars to show from the accident, but it changed my perspective in some wonderful ways, and has shown me strength I never knew I had. Any time something goes wrong in my life, I immediately have more difficult things to compare it to, to maintain perspective, and I never doubt my own strength.

Didn't Get The Job
- I was up for a really important job, and a less-qualified friend of the boss got it instead. This was really hard for me at the time, but when I look back, it was the best thing for me: I'm working for a much better company now, doing something I like a lot more than I would have liked the other job. The day I missed that job turned out to be my lucky day!
