As I look back on 2008, I cherish the memories made, the smiles shared, the tears cried, and the joy experienced! I have been so blessed, and I thank God for my blessings daily. This year has not been without trials, but through those trials I have grown in my walk with my Lord. I know that everything happens according to His will and that His grace is sufficient. My hope for 2009 is that I continue to grow in my relationship with the Lord, and that everything I do (and say) be to His glory. I resolve to be the best possible role model that I can be for my children, and to set an example that I would be proud for them to follow. Happy 2009!!
