SO I NEVER FORGET.....

I am grateful for the gift of faith which has carried me through difficult times and given me the courage to change and grow.
I am grateful for my husband, whose devotion to our children matches my own. I am grateful that he is willing to work hard and yet knows how to play. I am grateful for all that he has added to my life, all that I have learned from him, and for the opportunity I have had to be there for him.

I am grateful that my children are alive and healthy today.

I'm grateful for my past, even the bad stuff, because all of it led me to where I am today.
