2011 and Giving Thanks

I look at this picture and my breath is taken away from me, I am left speechless. This picture, I feel, shows just how blessed I am. I have a husband who adores me and my daughter and would do anything ( I mean anything!) for us, I have a beautiful daughter that makes me melt when she looks at me and I have a boss who can capture these beautiful moments for me- and she is happy to do it. Not to mention she loves my family, truly loves us. I have had to take a few steps back with the start of 2011 and get my head, thoughts and priorities in order. Those closest to me know what I am talking about. I am SO THANKFUL that God has surrounded me with people that point me to Him when I am reaching out for help. I have very special people in my life and the most important is God. From now on, I am making it a goal of mine to be a better Christian and share this with people so that one day they may experience God's grace and love as I am. I cannot imagine life without God, my family, my mentors and my friends.

This week, this verse has been ringing in my ears: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." I hope you can remember this when you start to doubt yourself.
