The best gifts come wrapped in barbed wire

Hey everyone!! So I'm really excited to try this blogging thing! It's always seemed really here it goes!

A little while ago in English we had to write a "This I believe" essay. This I believe is a webpage that people of all ages write to. The essays are short and sweet and consist of a belief that a person has discovered. The beliefs are not necessarily religious, but can be.
So the belief I chose to write about was entitled: The best gifts come wrapped in barbed wire. This may sound odd, but let me explain. You know the saying," You don't know what you have until it's gone?"- That's sort of it. Another quote I like sums it up pretty well also, " The harder the conflict, the greater the triumph." One thing that I have learned from life is that everything happens for a reason (a greater good to fulfill). When we suffer for ,from, or through something the source of relief is blissfully sweet. Take Utah weather for example: The longer we suffer through cloudy skies, the more we rejoice in sunny days.
So what can you take from this? It's worth the fight! Every moment of climbing and sliding down the rocky mountain is one step closer to the top; and oh can I tell you the view is breathtaking! :)
