I am a blessed woman. I am sitting here on my bed enjoying the quiet breeze reflecting on the last 35 years. My story is long, but full of God's grace and faithfulness. I know I'm not the only one who has been given so much and been through so much, but my unique story has turned me into who I am today. I can compare myself to other women who seem to have it all, but I know they have their own trials and heartaches and victories that made them who they are. I'm posting a picture of the birthday card my mother and father gave me. It's a perfect image of my beginning. Their encouraging words brought tears and a smile because I knew they meant every word.
You may not be able to read it but Mom's last words are BLOOM where you're planted!
