"Do not let them look down on you because you are young…"

My 14 year old cousin lives with my parents. She does so because my uncle took his own life just 6 short months ago. This was her current blog post:

“Its time for a change.
Current mood: thankful
Category: Life

Well my life is, well, lets just say awesome .

This year has changed my life for the better.

Let me go over somethings…

1.My stomach problems are gone.

2.I’ve gone to a better school.

3.Made better friends.

4.Quit some stupid stuff I dont think I need to say what it was.

5.Played softball, got active again.

6.I’m going to church and made new friends there as well.

7.Haven’t missed a day of school.

8.Got A’s and B’s.

9.I have a better relationship with my family.

10.I’ve realized how lucky I am and that everything is going to be okay things work themselves out I have my family and friends support.

I think God picked me out to go through the stuff I’ve gone through and maybe share my testimony to another kid in the future or one of my friends and just tell them that everything is going to be okay.

But when one door opens another door closes let me go over some of the bad.

1.I lost my dad.

2.I lost some of my friends.

But that’s okay everything happens for a reason.


I believe so. I am grateful for my struggles.

So yeah everything happens for a reason.”


I don’t know about you but I’m not sure I would have had the capacity at the age of 14 to have a list of positives far outweigh the negatives. Especially only 6 months after losing my dad and completely starting over. “I am grateful for my struggles”??? I do nothing but complain about my struggles and wonder why some things just can’t be easier. Seems like we can learn a lot from our young ones. I am so proud of her!
