Over the course of the last few months I have been thinking a lot about how blessed I feel. I hesitate to write this in a public forum because it is not the way I like to talk about myself, But I decided I wanted to show gratitude, not only in my prayers, but gratitude to the Lord that I can look back upon and remember this moment in time.
I went back to my home town for my sisters wedding (pictures to come) and the questions from old friends were the same. "How's your life going?" followed by "Do you have children, how many?" In questioning my friends, I found many of them have fallen on hard times or just were not satisfied with the way their life was turning out.
As I heard all of these story's of life and answered the questions asked of me repetitively over the course of the night the spirit touched my heart whispering "You have a very blessed life."
I stepped back and thought about the things I had been telling people and I realized, I have a husband that is so kind. We have employment. We have health. and Six fun, wild, sweet children, that make my life so full of purpose! I also have a strong conviction of Jesus Christ that carries me through the hard times enabling me to see eternal prospective when life gets hard.
I'm not trying to say that everything that I want and need in life has all been handed to me. And I don't think my life will always be so carefree... But what I can say is Life is Good and I am Happy!
