I turned a year older yesterday.
As I look back over my 48th spin around the sun, I am grateful…
— That I am more content with my life today than I was a year ago.
— For the many brave things I did last year and for the courage I will find to do more brave things in the year to come.
— For faith, hope and perseverance. Without these, I may have run away from my life four years ago and perhaps never known the beauty that can be made from ashes.
I am truly grateful.
