"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you." 1 Th 3:16-18
Today I woke up feeling a little run down and emotional. Perhaps it was the short but loooong weekend to Farmington for our 10 year reunion (a whole separate blog) with a 9 month old (yes he is nine months now). Or, maybe it was the idea of coming home to "reality" from such a care-free weekend. Oh and it definitely could be the fact that my mom is going to be gone this whole week and she is my biggest help with the little guy. Anyway it has just been one of those mornings that the demands of being a mom have taken priority over anything else I might be feeling or going through. I really needed to dig deep for the strength that was being demanded.
So I was thinking about my current situation and began soaking in how extremely blessed I am to have soooooo many supportive people around me. I am blessed beyond words to have such amazing friends and family in my life! So during a time that I am feeling weak I am strengthened by all of you. I am soooo thankful for all your encouragement, your support, kindness, forgiveness, compassion, open hearts, open mindedness, love and care!
I was listening to a song this morning and these words just stood out to me...
"We live, we love, we forgive and never give up, for the days that were given are gifts from above, so today we remember to live and to love."
So today I am comforted by the unconditional love that surrounds me and want to send a little bit of love right back your way. Thank you all soooo much for the role you play in my life. I love you!!!!!!
