I am so thankful.  Life happens to everyone.  There are peaks and valleys that we all must go through and for each of those journeys I am forever thankful.  I'm thankful because life is not promised to anyone so to be able to go through peaks and valleys is a blessing.  I'm thankful for my valleys because they make me appreciate my peaks all the more and not take them for granted.  I am thankful for my peaks because for me to be there I have grown tremendously.

Thankful.  As life happens and sometimes things occur that requires more than a "Thank you Lord".  I give God all the praise and the glory.  He knows my story and He puts a smile on my face every time I think of His grace and mercy. 

I am thankful that my husband is supportive and we work well as a team.  God allowed him to come into my life and I had my eyes open!  I saw him for who he is.  I was just 22 years old 17 years ago when we met.  Do you know how many women would have seen him through hooded eyes and let him go by?  But God opened my eyes and made it our destiny to be one and have three beautiful children. 

Thankful.  I didn't have to receive the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow first to know a wonderful opportunity when I saw it.  I didn't really know "what was in it for me", I just knew that I loved the products.  My daughter who had suffered so with her eczema was no longer suffering and was completely healed.  You don't have to tell me not to smoke because I may get lung cancer...you don't have to tell me twice.  I could've been a "I'll have to see" or "let me do some more research" type of person, but did I research the items we were using and having unsuccess with?

I am thankful for my children and their perfections and flaws.  They are a wonderful blessing to us.  I love their different personalities and similarities.  I will cherish these young years that I have with them forever.  I am so blessed to be able to spend this time with them because once these years are over they are done and then they will be grown-ups for the rest of their lives.

Thank you God for all the blessings you have done.  Even though this race is not won.  I know you love me because you gave your only begotten Son.
