This was me at age 6.
I am very blessed and thankful that I am celebrating another year. I know that God loves me because He has given me a wonderful family that I love so much. I still have both my parents who are healthy and happy. My brothers and sisters are the best friends that anyone could ever have. Nine nieces and nephews offer an enlightening (and sometimes frightening) view of a life so different than when we were their age. I am blessed with a wonderful husband and two beautiful boys who make me smile every day. We have been blessed with great times and a few curve balls here and there, but God has always been with us. For His love, compassion, kindness, and mercy, I am thankful.
