I have been so irresponsible with the blog lately, spending too much time stressed through pregnancy and not enough time giving inspiration and writing to all of you. Since I didn't get the opportunity to I suppose the topic needing to shed light on is the tornado tragedy. The forces of nature can sometimes be cruel and can really tear your lives apart. I can't imagine what the families affected are feeling and how they are overwhelmed thinking about how they have nothing left and have to rebuild from new. I will be praying for all of the people in Moore, Oklahoma and anywhere else that has been affected whether they are survivors or the families of the ones who lost their lives. I'm so relieved to know that everyone has risen to the occasion and now everyone is providing prayers, having charity concerts, and donating money to help the families through and help them rebuild. Also on the calendar this last weekend me and my husband celebrated our one year wedding anniversary and it was a beautiful thing, we got married on the Saturday before Memorial Day last year. I know Thanksgiving is the holiday designed to have everyone be thankful for all that they have, but to me and I'm sure a lot of other people out there, Memorial Day is just the same. A day commemorating those who lost their lives fighting for freedom, making it so our country is a safe place, and serving their country. I don't take the day lightly and I don't think anyone should. What a blessing it is! And just as I can thank God for taking my chains away, I can thank those men and women who fought and still fight everyday so I can be free. It is amazing to me as a mother especially knowing that my children will be able to play and have freedom because of the sacrifice that they are making for our country. Those men and women are what makes me proud to be an American. So for now I am closing this post with a quote,
"Whatever you decide to do, make sure it makes you happy."
