Annual Blessing

I woke up this morning full of excitement! The thought of moving into a new year of my life was very refreshing. It feels like a new beginning. It's an opportunity for me to leave the mistakes and heartaches of the past behind me. I can create my smiles of tomorrow. I realized this morning that I am in control of my destiny. God loves me and has never taken his hand off of me. As long as I submit to Him, my future will remain bright.

I hate to admit it but I was a bit anxious as well. My husband told me that today was my day to do whatever I wanted. Sadly enough, I couldn't think of anything that I wanted to do today. I am so used to finding excitement in the things I do with and for others that I have lost some of my own independence. I vow to regain control of me and to find those things this year.

As I begin this new year of life, I thank you for taking this journey with me. Together, we will find the balance we need to remain centered in all things.

I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
