"It is said that the darkest hour of the night comes just before the dawn" Thomas Fuller This sums up #2016 perfectly for me. I was really struggling at the start of the year and it got darker and darker. I questioned a lot of things, mostly my purpose, and God. However I after lots of long nights and feelings of doubt and fear I decided that I'd rather live my life believing that there is a God one who loves me and has a plan for me. Living with the hope that what I was feeling and going through was for my good and that it could help me become a better me (somehow). I realized that it was all up to me though. I had to choose to believe I had to choose to wake up and say I'm going to make today good. I had to decide that maybe my way isn't Gods way and be willing to try new paths and be open to new things. When I did, even though it was my darkest hour our sweet Cooper was placed in our arms. The dawn was bright, it was peaceful and I know it was God refining me those few months before. He knows how hard it is to be a mom and he was preparing me, I know it. He was helping me see that with Him I can do hard things and I can come out of them a stronger person. I know this is the worlds longest post but I just need to share that I know God lives. He loves us all, he sent us his Son to teach us and to die for us. The gift he blessed us with this year is one I will forever be grateful for. His amazing birth family especially his birth mom are so amazing and have blessed us more than I can say. We love them so much and are so glad they are still apart of our lives! Cooper is my dawn. He brings joy into our home that I didn't know was possible. As soon as I saw him I felt this feeling of familiarity, comfort like we were 2 pieces of a puzzle that finally came together. Thank you God for 2016. I'm a different and (hopefully better) person because of it. #2016 #darkestbeforethedawn #yearofmiricles #buckeyecoop #bestyearofmylife

All I'm saying on the subject. #america #darkestbeforethedawn

I couldn't help but smile when I came across this old photo and thought of all the good times at Geneva. Taking a day trip up to Geneva on the Lake became a bit of an unspoken summer tradition when I was younger, the funny part was that no matter how beautiful the weather looked on the drive there it would always rain shortly after we got there. The rain would always persist for a decent while as we ducked under awnings and dashed into little shops, but then out of nowhere it would end as abruptly as it started and there would be no trace of the rain that had just passed. To me those days with their brief storms followed by sunshine at the beach are a great example of life, lots of times the storm seems to come out of nowhere but once it's gone there are so much better things in store. #livethelittlethings #darkestbeforethedawn #tbt

so the clowns ain’t nervous,
Even you fools serve purpose.
Let β€˜em run amuck,

wish you could tell me what to do. I wish you could tell me how to fix things. I wish you could tell me how to live my life. What decisions to make. I wish you could physically do something to relieve my pain- in whatever form it is. I wish you could touch me and reignite all the sparks of myself I've lost over time. And I wish I never had to wish those things. I wish I could feel my skin come alive beneath your fingertips. Like a dark callous shell crumbling to reveal the soft pink skin of a newborn. Help me find the light I've lost. I know it's in there. #poetry #hope #chronicpain #darkestbeforethedawn

#Darkestbeforethedawn Thank you Lord for both. Appreciate the light when He sees us through the darkest of days.

"You, whose voice is someone's favorite voice, nothing would be the same if you did not exist"
I say this from the bottom of my heart and soul, if you ever think about taking your own life, PLEASE GET HELP. If you think you have no where to turn, you do. If you think no one understands, someone does. If you think no one is listening, someone is.
Sometimes you can't do it alone. Sometimes you need help. If you think you have no one else, you can always talk to me, even if I'm a complete stranger to you.
Let this be a pause in your story, not the end of your story. πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’š

Over every bridge is a holy place.
The @6amcycling boss man @tom_glendining. He and his comrade in cleats @lesley_sharpe led us over a bridge traversing the M25 on a 500km merry trip to Malvern and back this weekend. All the love to them for giving us all a 'king great experience.

Five minutes before this photo was taken the clouds were black and it was pouring rain. Then I looked out and a fabled double rainbow appeared. The second rainbow is faint in the sky, but trust me it is there. When was a time in your life when all you saw was darkness and then in an instant you saw a light of possibility shine through?
