Blessed Beyond Measure

I listened to a story from a dear friend last night, and it simply broke my heart! She was talking about some tough times she has faced over the past few years, and how her family wasn't there for her. It made me realize just how blessed I am to have my family.

Growing up my parents always told me they would love me and be here for me no matter what...even though there were times when they wanted to choke me, they always loved me. When I found out I was pregnant at 22 they once again proved to me that their love was unconditional. They were certainly disappointed in me, but they loved me through it all. They never judged me, or condemned me, and it made it so much easier to get through what could've been a terrible situation.

Standing over 2 years this side of that situation, all I have are good memories. I know there are people (probably even some who read this blog) who judged me, or condemned me...but that's ok, because I have judged other people for different things before too. It's easy to condemn when you aren't in their shoes! The truth is, we all sin, but some are more visible than others. God used that situation to turn my life around...and I am so thankful for that...and I am definitely thankful for the precious little girl I have because of it too!

God can use anything that happens in our lives, and He has certainly used Alexa so many times in my life. He continues to use her daily as a reminder of all the many blessings He has given me. Last night made me all more thankful for my wonderful family. God has and continues to bless me with and through them. I don't say it enough, but thank you God for my family, they truly are a blessing!
