this is my word for the year. It is appropriate right now as I am dealing with a huge struggle that is going to take a long time to "let go" of. It has built up through the years and it has taken its toll. I want to be a whole me again. I thank my dear friends who are praying me through this and know that it will take some time. Just like "it takes a long time to take off the baby weight" this release does not happen overnight. That qoute has hit me to my core. It is that final acknowledgement that I need to take it one prayer at a time. As I have regained part of myself back this year...going back to work again, it has really put so many things in perspective and I want to follow God's leading in this time.
