Today I am thankful for all the challenges I have had to face in my life thus far. I see life as an adventure and I'm certain there are going to me more challenges ahead and I am ready. It has always been my view that everything happens for a reason , good and bad, you can chose to lay down and be the victim or stand up and fight on I have been blessed with great experiences and horrible experiences, things I could never imagine that I could get through. What I have come to realize in this last year is that it is not my body that makes me strong it is my faith. Today I can say that I have truly learned what it means to forgive and for that I could not be more thankful. If I had to go back and live my life over again I wouldn't change a thing..
