This past year has been one of the greatest and most difficult years of my life. I became a mommy to our first born, Maddox Jacob, who now watches over us from Heaven. I learned that love can be an unbreakable bond. That this life is temporary, and nothing is guaranteed. To not take anything for granted. I saw that signs and messages are everywhere, you just have to keep your heart open to receive them. I learned that being vulnerable is always the right choice. I witnessed the tremendous depth of my own strength. I’m learning that joy and sorrow can coexist. I realized that my love, compassion, empathy, wisdom, strength – all that is good in me – comes from my Heavenly Father. He is the source of everything good.
As we begin a new chapter in this book called life I pray this year is filled with love, strength, forgiveness, grace. More prayer, less worry. More love, less fear. More acceptance, less judgement. More grace, less grudges. More people, less media. More healing, less regret. More growth, less comfort. More memories, less things. More Jesus, less me. And my greatest prayer is that this year will be filled with so many rainbow babies.
