This time last year was tough...Kevin had hit rock bottom with the drinking and I didn't think we were going to make it. As a matter of fact, I was sure it was over. My only concern this time last year was getting him some help, so I could move on with my life. Wow...look where that took us! On September 15th of last year, John 3:16 Ministries entered our lives and life as we knew it would forever change. I will forever be grateful to God for bringing Kevin back into my life and for the journey that we took together to have the relationship we do now. Life isn't always easy. We still have our share of struggles, but the struggles and valleys of life are so much easier with God walking beside you.
Take a minute to reflect on where life has taken you over the last year. Makes me wonder where I'll be this time next year...if you had told me a year ago that Kevin and I would be married and trying to have a baby, I would have laughed in your face. But, that is where we are...some people I am sure, thought I was nuts to stay with him after all the hardships, but I was simply doing what I knew was right...following God's plan for my life - not my plan.
I want to just take a minute as I look back on this past year and praise God for the blessings.
I am thankful for...
that I am married to my best friend
John 3:16 Ministries
that we have a roof over our head and money to pay the bills
Kevin is able to start his dream business
that I work with some amazing Christian people
a job I love
a sober husband!
What are you thankful for? Bet it's hard to name just one - isn't it? :-)
