"Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim."
Tyle Knott Gregson
Great perspective on life! I pray that we all join together to ride the waves and enjoy the water, remembering that this is what it feels like to be alive. I pray that I begin to show gratitude to God for my ability to ride the daily seas of adventure.

Thought for the Day:Just as a butterfly can not see the beauty of its own colorful wings, we also as humans do not recognize our own beauty both within and outside ourselves. We are able to instantly acknowledge the gorgeous wings of a butterfly but when it comes to ourselves we don't realize our own uniqueness. We are all "wonderfully and remarkably made" by God. So never doubt your self worth or appearance, because even though you, yourself may not notice it, people looking at you from the outside will, just as you recognize the butterfly's.
Never, ever, ever Give Up! I am serious. Just over the past few months God has brought me further than I could have ever imagined back when I had the tube. I am now eating solids after being in the hospital for 6 weeks, where I managed to gain enough weight for the artery's correction. Although I am indeed in remission from SMA Syndrome, that does not at all mean that I do not struggle. Life is certainly not easy for me, but God did not promise it would be easy. I believe that since He has my best interests in mind though, that IT WILL BE WORTH IT! I have recently doubted that I could completely overcome my illnesses but I have finally decided that with God on my side, who or what can stop me from acheiving all I've ever dreamed of! I don't just want to be an ordinary and healthy person when I recover, but I am perservering to be an EXTRAORDINARY, HEALTHY, teenager who focuses on God and being the best possible version of myself that I can be.
