This is just the introduction to an article I wrote Titled “Families Who Survived The Odds” and I don’t know why, but I just love this intro and I wanted to share it on here. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
CelebFamilies Who Survived The Odds
Families come together, through the good times and the bad. Joyous and blissful occasions such as wedding, births, anniversaries, and graduations are celebrated regularly and treasured; moments where milestones are met and welcomed with delight and enjoyment. Not everything can always be bright and cheery; however, tragedies happen. It’s how we handle these tragedies together as a family that makes all the difference. Surviving the odds with loved ones, and making it out stronger through life’s challenges is what matters the most, and is what defines us as human beings.
Life happens, and it happens to everyone. We cannot always control what gets thrown our way, but what we can control is how we react to and handle how we deal with the situations that get thrown at us. When we go through these dreaded tragedies, and our worst nightmares have been laid out before us, we look to our loved ones for the strength and courage to be able to overcome what we may have once seen as unbearable circumstances of fate.
As a single element, we may feel that we are incapable of surviving single-handedly. When families come together and unite, the impossible may no longer seem as impossible. Unfortunately, not all families are able to survive when times get difficult, and they crumble under the tension and pressure. However, the families that are able to survive the odds always make it out stronger and are capable of achieving anything in the end. They know what it truly means to be able to have almost lost it all, and are always more grateful for life’s tiniest of blessings”
