Have you ever needed to be reminded how blessed you are? I do all the time.

I get so caught up in day-to-day life that I forget to stop, look around me, and thank God for all that I have that is good in my life.

This is been a tough week. You see I failed my Nursing final this week by 2 points and now have to repeat the coarse in January.

I was 12 weeks from graduating! (I am still mourning the loss)

All that I could think about is how this puts all of my plans back a year...

To own a house...

A new 4 door car...

Maybe Marriage...

Possibly a new little brother, or sister for Zachary...

But in case you missed what I just said these were MY plans, not GOD'S!

So, needless to say I was feeling pretty sorry for myself on Tuesday. Well Okay, were all friends at this point, I was wallowing in self pity if you really must know!

I went to my computer to Tweet the bad news and I saw this. And if that were not enough I watched this video! (For some reason this hyperlink did not change colors, but you can click on "video" and see the video. There is a 15 second comercial that plays first, then the story)

Who am I to be upset that my life has been delayed another year? I may not have the car that I want, but I have a very nice car that has never gave me any trouble(knock on wood), I may not have the house that I want but I do have a roof over my head!

Most Importantly I have a wonderful, healthy, little boy that I don't deserve! I don't know what it is like to carry a child, just to come home to an empty cradle. I have not had to see my baby suffer. I get to tuck him in at night, kiss his boo-boos, and raise him to know our Savior. I have a family that loves me, sisters that are always there for me,a Mama that taught me how to love Christ, and a Daddy that spent years defending the helpless.

I am so BLESSED!

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank-You so much for the blessings in my life. Please help me to never forget how much you have gave me. Please help me to be thankful for everything that you put into my life, and to always remember that you have a plan for me; and although I do not know that plan yet please allow me to have peace in knowing that you are in charge!

Tell me how you have been blessed!

Love you, love this post, and remember that He never gives us what we can't handle. said...

Thanks for saying "hello". I wish you the best on your journey to being the nurse...

I loved what you said here.

Viewing Angie on the news touched me again. After following her for so long, seeing her pain moves me.

Take care of YOU.
