It has been one year since this little blessing has graced us with her presence.
This little girl and her beautiful strong mother has truly taught me how to take a step back and praise God for what life had to offer. They taught me, yes, we all have to face some extremely dark times but with God on our side, we will truly find the light at the end of the tunnel.
Life is going to knock us down but you know what we still praise God for allowing us to see another day. You may not think you are strong enough to get past this trying situation but God will never allow anything to happen where you aren't strong enough to conquer.
My best friend Sasha went through a time that tested her heart and went through phases where it became difficult for her but her faith was never shaken. She surrendered and leaned heavily on the Lord, knowing God will make a way. Through this painful situation, God brought a HUGE blessing, Ms. Avéa-lynn.
This beauty brings so much happiness in all the lives that witnesses her smile and quirky personality. Even though she didn't come from my womb, I love her like she was my own. She is so loving and if you are feeling upset or sad, she will quickly replace that with so much happiness. She is my little innocent ball of Serenity.
She has taught me to look at Life with a whole new pair of lenses. Yes, our lives may not be perfect but that is okay, we are on a journey and that journey is our story. Enjoy what life has to offer regardless if it is good or bad. We only have a limited amount of time on earth, we should cherish it as much as we can. Of we do this, we would not experience happiness. I learned happiness is only based on what happens in life, our emotions are controlled based off of what kind of events happen in our lives. We have to learn to free ourselves from the control of events and start to focus on our inner power, God. He made us in his image and life may not be perfect but we can cherish it anyways. Once we can truly accept this, we can finally experience pure Joy.
The life you have is a GIFT. Cherish it. Enjoy it now to the fullest.
