30 Days of Truth | Day 15May 18, 2012
Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
I couldn't live without Jesus. I've never tried, but there are times when I try to do things on my own accord ... being impatient or without praying about it first. After all of the times God has blessed and made a situation exactly what I needed it to be, I don't even know why I would.
I couldn't live without my family. Again, I've never tried and it's not even a consideration. I was talking with someone who was trying to get me to understand that there are those family members who are so nerve-wrecking that they cause you to stay away all together. Insert: Blank stare. I said, "no, I don't." I grew up living next door to my maternal grandparents and down the street from my paternal grands. I was fortunate to have as many as 10 my first cousins living in the same neighborhood with my brothers and me growing up. We had relay races up and own our street and flagged cars to hurry by in the middle of our football games, played baseball in the field, worked in my grandmother's garden ... Life was perfect. I talk to one of my brothers, cousins and aunts/uncles by phone every single day. So, living without that connection is unfathomable. Family is everything to me.
I couldn't live without chocolate ice cream. I have tried and it didn't work out.
