18 Months down and a lifetime to go...

I can't believe it has already been a year and a half without my wonderful husband. I have been looking at pictures the last few days and I miss him so much. It is so hard to believe how God has changed my path so many times in my life. Last year at this time I did not want my birthday to even come and this year I am so looking forward to it.

A year ago at this time I was in so much pain I could not see past my own pain. I am so thankful to the Lord that he changed my path. I am no longer in pain daily, I have a future to look forward to & I have love in my heart again. The Lord is so good!

I am so thankful that I did not let satan win when I wanted to give up and turn my back on God. I am so blessed that the Lord has not given up on me. He is so amazing and so loving.

It is not easy to move on with your life when the one you thought was going to spend the rest of that life with you is gone, however it is necessary to do so. Jimmy would want for me to move on as he would want me to be happy and not just mope. I am sure Jimmy is happy for me if he can see me now.

I have moved to Tennessee, met an amazing man who loves me unconditionally and married him. I have been thinking about going back to school for my master's degree...as of now we have to figure out a way to pay for that if that is the route God has for me. My future is looking up and I am so grateful to God for that.

So much has changed in the last two years...sometimes I am overwhelmed when I think about all that has changed. But I am always thankful for those that stuck by my through thick and thin and prayed for me all the time. I am so thankful for my amazing friends that the Lord have given to me. I am also thankful for my family and the new family that the Lord have given me!
I am so blessed!!
