Thankful for 2016

Truth: I spent a good amount of 2016 in a state of anger, bitterness and depression. I let too many things almost break me emotionally when I should have been relying on my faith more. When I went back to my photos to reflect, I asked God, “why in the world did I waste my time complaining? You gave me an amazing year.” He really did. Despite some of the speed bumps, He gave me awesome friends, times to cherish my kids, and countless victories. Thank you Lord for all the people you placed and kept in my life this year. Without them, I really don’t know where I would have been. 2017, not sure how you’re gonna top 2016!
