We have the ability to wake up every day (God willing) and
direct how our day is going to go. 
Regardless of how we are feeling or what we are going through,
we should be grateful. Grateful for it all. The good, bad and the ugly.
The good makes us appreciate and to feel euphoric. 
The bad hurts but it is also a lesson we probably wouldn't learn
if we weren't going through it.
And the ugly, well, even in that, there's a lesson. Sometimes you have 
to look a little harder for it or wait out the pain, but it's there.
Our choices are our own. Others don't need to understand because, honestly,
we all have different levels of understanding. 

It's taken me a long time to reach this point. For me, moving to 
Alabama was a rebirth of many things. 
I wake up each morning with the sun to gather my thoughts, stretch
my strong body, give thanks to Jesus and have my quiet conversations
over coffee, with God. I absolutely love my morning rituals. Sometimes
I get a loud message and other times I just have to trust.

Life has been a crazy whirlwind, especially the past year. 
I've done things I never thought I could, I found something
that I absolutely am in love with and I found my source
of being of service to many. 

I believe that is Peace.

I took these photos a few weeks ago and
just drank in the beautiful pink sky.

After, I put my phone down and just
enjoyed being in it until it went away.
All the while, thinking, 
"Wow, You are amazing."
