There is greatness in doing something you hate for the sake of someone you love.
Shmuley Boteach (via myquotelibrary)

Hold your loved ones as close to you as possible. Never know when you’ll lose them.

Peace.

My soul is calm at last. The Lord has shown me forgiveness, love, and comfort. The one person who I had began to shut out of my life is appearing again and my heart is full of love.

No more stress, no more worries…

"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
Psalm 23

cancer don’t discriminate or care if you’re just 38
Completely Heartbroken.

My best friends mother, who is like a second mother to me just found out she has stage 4 cancer. At first, we found out that it was just breast cancer but we just found out it has spread to her lungs, liver, spine & back of her neck. I cannot imagine not having this woman in my life. Everyday from age 5 to at least age 16, I was at her house. She birthed my best friend and has given me many memories. Please pray for her and pray for strength for the family and friends. I know I am going to need it. <3

Big, Open Doors-

Thank you Jesus, for continuing to open, huge, exciting doors in our life. Justin being accepted to begin his process of his contractor’s license & Me getting an awesome, career-oriented job just shows how perfect getting married when we did was. I cannot wait to stop working the second job & finish school so that I can continue to move up in my department. I’ve never loved going to work so much until now & none of this would be possible without you. Thank you thank you thank you!

Some young mothers should read this-

Myth: Putting rice cereal in your infant’s bottle will help him sleep.
The truth: Hold off on introducing solids until 4 to 6 months. Research suggests that babies who are given solids before 4 months are actually worse sleepers than their formula-fed counterparts—an studies have revealed a link between the early introduction of solids and obesity later in life.
