It's the first Sunday in 2014 and I have so much to be thankful for.
This year got off to a rocky start even though we are only FIVE days into it. I'm DETERMINDED to be thankful, have a heart of gratitude and trust God no matter what.
The tears my fall, I may get a little overwhelmed but I am going to continue to trust God.
I was thinking about what I'm MOST thankful for. Looking back over 2013 I have a LOT I can be thankful for but I'm MOST thankful that we found out what was going on with Kayla. She had surgery to correct the issue and is now doing SO much better.
I had emergency surgery last year and yes I'm thankful that all went well, but my childs life and health are so much more important to me than my own. I'd give anything to make sure that all of my children are healthy and safe. It's the momma in me.
I was introduced to Heather not long ago and her story is one that is truly remarkable. She was given 15 months to live. Y'all have GOT to read about it. I was amazed. You can click HERE to read it.
Stories like these kinda change your outlook. Well, let me say her story changed MY outlook.
It falls in line with where I am right now. Trusting God no matter what, being thankful and having a heart of gratitude.

I'm not perfect, just striving to be the woman God wants me to be. Keeping my life lined up with the WORD and Trusting Him every step of the way.
