Think you've got it bad??

Here's a little perspective.

Take a few minutes out of your day to watch this video.

Nick Vujicic will be visiting our church this Sunday!! What a testimony he has!! What a service it's going to be.

Today, I'm thankful to be able to walk. I'm thankful that I have arms and hands to hug my family and friends.

Oh, the things we take for granted.

And I realize, I don't have it that bad.

But you know what, I would sincerely hope that even if I didn't, that I'd still be able to praise and love my God anyways, and have that same attitude as Nick has.

Beautiful story.

I take so many things for granted every single day. I'm trying to stop and smell the roses, so to speak, so that I can teach Cohen to do the same. :)

Speechless, but in a good way :)

I havent commented in awhile, but I just saw where "Something Borrowed" by Emily Giffin has been turned into a movie with Kate Hudson! I was thinking you were talking about her books on twitter the other day. Ive read all of her books and they are amazing. Definitely check out the trailer! =)

What an amazing story! Thank you so much for sharing. When you realize that there are things so much bigger than us, it really puts things into persepctive.
