...i hope you find peace today on Good Friday...and take a few moments to relflect on what was given up for you and give thanks and praise...i hope that you continue to be the best you can be everyday, even if it takes great effort....everyone falls sometimes, everyone falters, but remember that there is SOMEONE who is with you each step of the way....encouraging you and loving you whether you can hear HIM or not...HE's there...so have faith and keep walking on.....i have plenty of days where i am wondering what the heck is going on and just want to curl into the fetal position, but all i have to do is look inside myself and know i am here for a purpose and even if i never figure out what that purpose is, i am still doing what i was put in place to do....HE always provides for me even if it isn't the answer i wanted.
....i am thankful for my ability to create...and i am also thankful for my favorite subjects....they sometimes are the only reason i climb out of bed each day...they need me as much as i need them.
...countless....the ways i love them really are countless....and i didn't mean to get all deep on you, i just sometimes really take for granted how lucky i am...i have a mother, father, father in law and step mother and two step brothers who are always there if i need them, great brother in laws and sister in laws and nephews, a multitude of aunts, uncles and loving cousins...and a great bunch of friends near and far who support me and love me....and i don't think it's any coincidence. i never tell y'all enough that i love you and appreciate you, so if you're reading this now you know.
....the layout above is part of a challenge over at THE PAPER VARIETY....and you should really jump in and play.
