My New Life

So this is a video I saw on a friend of mine's blogs and I just had to share it with everyone. As I sat and watched this video I wondered about my own life and the things that I find as struggles. Wow, do they seem so small in comparison. I know that we each have our own challenges in life but this woman has more strength than I could ever hope to have. She is an example to so many people. Probably more than she will ever know. When watching the movie it made me think a lot about where I am in life at this time. I am not a perfect person by any means. I struggle each and every day to do the the things that I know are right and true. I struggle to be the mom that I want to be, the wife that I want to be, the daughter, the sister, the friend. I want the people that have had such an important impact on my life to know it. I want to have that impact on the people I loves lives as well. I struggle to do the things for my children that I know they need. Each day I want to do more for them, teach them more, have more patience with them. Show them how much their mother cares for them and would give anything for them. My role as a mother in this life is one of the most, if not the most important role I will ever have. I have been entrusted with these two beautiful children that need me. They depend on me for everything and I just don't want to fail at it. I want to raise them right and teach them correct principles. To see a woman like this who has to overcome so much and still knows that her role as a mother is the most important, shows and teaches me that I can do it. I know that I can. I will work each and every day to do better and to be better for them. I know with Christs help I can accomplish this goal.

I've seen that before and it gets me every time. "Be strong and of good courage for the Lord thy God is with thee."
