“We really don’t fit in anywhere, do we?” I finally admitted it out loud to my husband. We never quite fit the mold provided for us by society. Looking back over the years we’ve been married, we have tended to run from the mold, which has made it difficult for us to feel as though we belong anywhere.

"When I think about gratitude, I can’t help but look back on the times I’ve struggled most in my life and how God has worked through people to teach me about his goodness, compassion, and grace. As I am able to process each struggle, I intentionally look for where God was in the midst of each moment and almost every time, I see his provision, comfort, care, compassion, goodness, and love revealed to me through those around me."
