There was a time in my life when I thought I would never have happiness again… but I am in a much better place now than I ever thought was possible. Wow. That’s about all I can say. I am so blessed. This morning while lying in bed I couldn’t help but just smile, and be thankful for everything that God has given me. I was able to keep my job. I have a beautiful home. I could not ask for a more supportive and loving family. I am soon to be married to an amazing man. I have friends that truly care about me. I think surrounding yourself with good positive people is so important. It’s kind of funny because Ben and I have been helping Austin & Missy run a Senior High Youth Group at their house and this has been the topic the past 2 Wednesdays… choosing good friends. Yesterday I went out to lunch with this really great group of women, who are all wonderful mothers and wives and I realized that these are the kind of women who I look up to… and I am so thankful to have wonderful people like this in my life.
Next weekend I will be going on a Women’s retreat with Ashley. I have never done anything like this and I am so excited for this opportunity. Plus the brochure and theme is adorable!
Also starting in October, I will be joining a women’s small group with Ashley. It is called [The Power Of A Praying Wife] and although I’m not a wife yet… I think it will be a really great class!
