my heart is full of thanks. so full. stephanies story has really effected me. i dont know her personally. but i feel like i have a connection to her. i am a young mother. we share the same faith. she has been inspiring to me for so long. since i have started blogging. this experience has made me realize how much i have. and that i cant take my children, my husband, and my good life for granted. i have been. i have been in a slump. today i laughed with my children. i saw past the piles of toys and dishes and saw their smiles and heard their laughter! life is short. and i will cherish every day with my children. i will try and give them a great life with happy memories of a happy mother. i hope to have this feeling with me for a long time and not forget it.
