Two years ago today I got the phone call that brought me to my knees.  First in fear and anguish and then in prayer.  It took a few days but God poured his grace over me and I knew everything was as it should be.  He has been so good to me and today I am nothing but thankful.  Thankful to have the friends and family He has given me. Thankful for the doctors and nurses that took care of me. Thankful for my health and to simply be alive.  I am extremely thankful to have the faith that I do - it has carried me when I was not strong enough to carry myself.  This Christmas I wish all of you the peace and comfort that comes in knowing you are right where you are supposed to be.  I challenge you to live your life in gratitude - looking at the things you DO have.  I hope that you look at each hiccup in your life as another opportunity to grow and I wish you the courage to succeed and overcome obstacles.  Most of all I wish you love.  Love from others.  Love for others. I hope you feel His love, the most powerful love I have ever felt, surrounding you.  I most sincerely wish you a very merry, meaningful and beautiful Christmas.
