Today I turned 32…. if you would have told me a year ago all of the twist and turns of 2012 I would have not believed you. It has been challenging and exciting all at the same time. I have been pushed to new personal limits and experienced happiness that was unknown.
I have found comfort in a small gift I received from an older much wiser mom . For the past year I have held onto that birthday greeting card. It has been my saving graces when days were hard or when I was feeling unsure . With the greeting card I was given a angel figurine one of those Willow Tree kind. It was the Angel of Miracles. This angel and card have been sitting next to my bed for the past 365 days. The front of the card is a picture of a door knob with these words underneath “there is more to your life than you ever thought. There is more to your story than what you have read. The inside of the card continues with “Through the Lord, may this coming year be even more than you ever dreamed it could be!” Then the sweet hand written note from my mom ” I received a miracle on the twelfth month on the twelfth day and I know 2012 holds a miracle for you and your family. We don’t know when or how but i believe…. 2012 will be a great year. Have faith!
Those words could not be more true. 2012 did hold a miracle for me and my family. We certainly did not know how big of a miracle it would be. I am so thankful to have people in my life who lift me up when times are hard and who tell me to keep pushing when I am weak.
So here is to a new birthday!
