Pictures are Worth a Thousand Words

Or so they say.....
 I love this picture of us. I actually took this on my computer. It was one of those moments when I was trying to read my email and my boys kept buggin' me. So I opened up the Photo Booth on my Mac and they literally tackled me! I have two girls who were no where to be found. 
So we laughed and did a photo shoot with just us. 

When I look at my face, I see genuine happiness and joy! My children bring me that joy. 
They make my world a better place.

The thing that defines me most is being a Mom.

Life gets so busy. 
And I've been at a loss for words. 
As I have opened up to God's plan, he has taken me down a path that I didn't think I would go on. I often thought of my job as a nurse as a way to make money while doing something I enjoyed. I thought of my creativity as the only way God could use me to reach others. 
What I failed to see was how it is all a package... 
like a present... 
from God. 
Maybe my view had to do with the way people saw me, 
or the way I saw myself. 
Who knows. 
What I do know is that God has a plan. 
For me. 
For you. 
This Christmas, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus,  my prayer for you is that you will look deep inside and find the gifts that God gave you. 
You're very own present.
