My heart is so full today. I have so many things to be grateful for. But today – and these past couple months in particular – this picture about says it all.
It has been a tough couple months. Seeing Crew go through so much. Knowing for the past couple months that my baby is in heart failure, and always wondering in the back of my mind if we’ll be able to see him grow up (although things are looking good now). But then I think of the blessings that have filled our lives since September 19, and my soul is overwhelmed with feelings of gratitude for the reality of a loving God who doesn’t desert His children in times of trial. I have felt His love so strongly as I have cried and prayed more in the past couple months than more at any other time in my life. I’ve learned so much. Maybe Crew had to go through this for me. So Heavenly Father could teach me things He couldn’t in any other way. I am grateful for the things I have learned…and the things I have yet to learn. I go to bed each night and offer up prayers of gratitude for all that I’ve been given . . . and I’m sure to get up the next morning enjoying the profound and unceasing blessings of a new day.
