Moments of Strength

I've just spent some time starring at the blank screen in front of me, partly because I wasn't sure what to write and partly because there is so much I could write. I've been thinking about my family and friends all over and the obstacles we are all facing in life and I thank God that we have each other. 
The smallest of things is where I find my strength most often. A smile, a hug, a compliment, an opportunity to help someone else...It could go on forever.  I know that without my moments of weakness, I couldn't have found my moments of strength. I am thankful for my tests and trials in life.
Those moments that made me, ...Me. It was those tough times that forced me to make a decision, encouraged me to turn to God, and ultimately changed my life forever; I wouldn't change one thing.
At the worst and hardest of times, I find myself feeling the strongest, thanks to my Heavenly Father. He buoys me up when everything else seems to be pulling me under. How blessed are we? To know that He will ALWAYS be there for us. And to know that I have the support of my family and friends as well is.... well....I have no words. Thank you.

Isn't it amazing? I was about to call you and tell you how much I loved this post, but I am a crying mess today (mostly good, after the bad cry earlier). I love you so much!

Oh Sister Shay, your life is going to turn out so marvelously because of that spirit. You guys are in our prayers constantly and we miss you (constantly).

P.S. need more pictures of Izzy.
