This photo was taken about a 2 months after our daughter was born in '09. I found it today and it made me realize how far I have come since then. Today I am simply me. I don't dress the way I used to, act the way I did back then and the growth in motherhood and as a person is way up there. I know that I am everything I am today because I grew from a girl who hated the world and everyone in it into a girl that loves and thrives to bless anyone who steps into my life. I sometimes get hurt from my efforts and feel unappreciated but ultimately I serve an awesome God and the blessings I'll receive will be more wonderful than any I could receive in this world. I love who I have become.
