I Can Beat That…

As she sat in traffic, she noticed a bumper sticker that read: I Survived Mt. St. Helens. She tisked and said out loud, “I can do better than that, I survived the death of a child, bankruptcy, two divorces and countless other experiences that threatened to take my hope, my sanity and anything else that could be destroyed.”

Then she thought, “no, I didn’t just survive, I managed to thrive in spite of these events. I overcame“.

She sat up in her seat and took a deep breathe and was suddenly not as tired as she thought she was.
