It's In The Little Things

My little girl has gone through such a mile stone...We celebrated her first birthday today. What fun it was to watch her play and have so much fun. It reminds me of all the little things that bring joy to my life. My family. It is truly one of the greatest prides that I have. It comforts me to know of all the people that care and love me so much. Nothing else matters. Not money, not degrees, not what people family matters most to me. And in that family is included friends, too because true friends are family as well.

I give thanks to that everyday and ask that God will keep us healthy and together for many years to come. So many times we think we don't have anything...but we fail to remember the many blessings that God has given us. It's in the little things that He sees how grateful we are when He realizes how much we truly deserve. The support that my family gives me is just a glimpse of the much support and care that I recieve through God. I thank Him and am joyful for His love everyday.

"You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore." Psalm 16:11

Happy Birthday to your beautiful little girl! I know what you mean about family. My family has kept me going strong all these years living with PH, and my friends are also a big part of my life. Without these people in my life, I do not know how I would survive! God is great in the people He allows into our life, and I am so greatful for that every day!

If it weren't for my church family and the PH family I wouldn't have any. God has brought me together with many special people. Without the Lord's strength I know I wouldn't be able to get going. Blessings to you and your family. Sorry I am late - but Happy Birthday to your little one. Deb.
