Today.

Today I celebrate another journey around the sun on this beautiful, broken, planet.
Today I celebrate what was one of the hardest years of our life, yet one of my most favorite.
When we are weak, our God is strong.
He makes beautiful things out of us.
These are the moments that make it all worth it.  These are the moments that I hold on to.
My savior.  My husband.  My family.  My friends.
Undone thinking about the beauty that is this little life that we live each and every day.
Happy.  So very happy.
