Today is my birthday. I embrace this day with a heart filled with thanksgiving.
Out of all of the women in this world, I am thankful that the Lord entrusted me to be the mother of my beautiful daughter. I am honored to witness her unique development as a lovely young teenager who is beginning to discover her special gifts and purpose in life.
I am thankful that I have been able to appreciate good health and longevity. Each day that I live gives me another opportunity to strive to become a better human being as I endeavor serve as a positive example to others.
Knowing that my life is filled with purpose fills me with thanksgiving. I am excited about the journey that lies ahead of me because there are more goals to attain and more challenges to overcome.

- Purpose: Fulfilling the calling that has been placed on one’s life
- Honor: Always remaining honest
- Character: Being filled with goodness
- Faith: Believing in God’s love and power as well as staying hopeful
