what if you were given a new life?


I just watched this and had to post it.  My heart is so full.. I mean how can you not be touched by this?  I have so much to learn about what life really is all about.
I feel like Eric and I have had some trials in our short time of being married but they have been short lived.  My biggest complaint right now is since I've stopped using birth control my face has not been accepting the hormone change very well.  I break out all the time and feel like an awkward teenager again.  How selfish am I?  What an eye opener and reality check to what is really important.  
I have an amazing husband who loves me no matter what.  We both are so healthy and happy.  We have the best family and friends.  We are both working and live great lives.  
As the trials keep coming our way I will do my very best to find the positive in them.  To search for growth opportunities, that is after all, why we're presented with trials.  And most importantly I'll yearn to strengthen my relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior, and Heavenly Father.  Sometimes it is so easy to forget that we are not alone.  But I know that we are NEVER alone.  
I hope that I can be as strong as this woman.  I want to live my life to the fullest and be an example to those around me along the way.  I hope this helps you to have a better day, to take a step back and recognize all that you are blessed with.  It has helped me!

These people are truly inspirational, God has big plans for us all if we just open our hearts.
