Blessed, that is such a great word. It means so many different things to everyone. For me lately, it is about family and finding out I am stronger than I ever imagined.
I have struggled at times about the fact that I am adopted. My parents picked me up 5 days after my birth. I am so incredibly lucky, these people took on a very sick child and never once made me feel bad or unloved. I love them, they are the best parents. I have three children, but one fights a drug problem. He has spent much of his twenties in jail and strung out. He finally found a place that would help him, called Mercy House. We went to court yesterday and we are blessed, he doesn't have to serve any more time. And his faith is strong. I will always fight a battle with my weight, although for the past few weeks, and 8 lbs lost, I am feeling less of a struggle and more of an adjustment.
Life is good, God is Great...and each day, no matter what the circumstances, I am stronger and more in control of my life, as I give up control of my life to God.
