Sacrifice

As we grow into adults

We get lesson after lesson

Of sacrifice

And we’re shown again and again

Its rewards

We sacrifice

For our kids

For our family

For that car

For this house

For that job

For this status

We go without

We abstain

We hold back

All for a greater cause

This time

My lesson

Will be the sacrifice made

For me

For my craft

For my writings

I will sacrifice time from the kids

Because they’d rather be somewhere, anywhere, other than hanging with their mom

I will sacrifice time from my spouse

Because he’d much rather have more time to talk with his mistress than talk with me about our future

I will sacrifice money from my measly earnings

Because I may be living paycheck to paycheck but the few dollars spent to be amongst other people who share the same passion of writing

Is worth it to me

I will sacrifice whatever is needed

Because I believe

It is time

The prize of our ‘journey’ is not given to the swift or the strong…, but those of us willing to pray, hope, believe, suffer and sacrifice for the things that ‘drive us’. Our strength comes from our Creator – none other. Be well and be strong – you have the tools (you always have)

Good comment, Sukie, and I hope she listens to you! I think the key to this one is at the end (like the other one) and that's that you believe...not we believe or they, but YOU are that key, and I feel it strong in your words, so PLEASE don't ever give up!
