I try not to get too personal on this blog, but the holidays make me very introspective. I think about where I was a year ago, and in many ways my life has taken a step back. I'm definitely not at a place I want to be or even imagined I'd be, but I am thankful for God's grace despite my circumstances. I have been blessed with many opportunities and have hope in the Lord, who has unrelentlessly been by my side. God is good, all the time.
