My life has been blessed with so many wonderful people, places, opportunities and possessions. I am thankful for all of it and continually reminded that even the things that don't feel like blessings in the moment are part of a bigger plan that make up the framework of this one beautiful life.
Most of all, I am grateful for this life that I am living right now. It is more than I could have imagined a year ago and so, so much more than I could have imagined seven years ago. I am forever thankful that God put Brian in my path and that He has blessed us with this life that we are building together.
