My family and friends help me bring meaning to my life. It is very important to me to be a good mother to my daughter and a good wife to my husband. I try to be a good person in my everyday life and set a good example for my daughter to aspire to. I try to have a good work ethic and do the right thing in every situation that I face. My family is the most important thing to me, and they bring me joy when we celebrate both small and big successes. My family also gives meaning to my life by making me strive to be a better person in order to inspire my daughter and to teach her how to navigate the journey of life. I have hoped every day that my daughter will continue to grow into a beautiful woman, both inside and outside and that I will be a part of that.
Faith is very important to me because it also gives me hope for the future. I believe that one day I will see lost loved ones again because of my faith. I am thankful for blessings that I experience and know in my heart that things happen for a reason, both good and bad. If it wasn’t for faith in a higher power, the bad would get overwhelming and it would be hard to see any good in my life.
I am a board member for my church and for a cemetery organization. Being a both a member of my church and being on the board is very rewarding to me. I feel that I get to help make a difference in other people’s lives as well as them being a blessing to me and making a difference in my life. Sometimes I get inspired by other members actions, which in turn makes me want to try harder and be a better person. Sometimes, there are tough decisions to be made, but I must stand by my convictions and make recommendation based on what I feel is right and hopefully, other members support both me and my decisions.
I feel that my most important belief is my faith in God. I pray for my family, for wisdom and peace and for continued blessings in my life. I thank God every day that he has given me what he has, such as food to eat, a roof over my head, shelter to keep me warm and dry. I also thank God for the people he has placed in my life, such as my husband, my daughter and my parents. They have all helped me to become the person that I am today.
My faith is very important to me and I have tried to instill these values in my daughter, just as my parents instilled them in me. My husband and I have similar beliefs, which makes us a great couple and we are usually in sync when it comes to raising our daughter. Even my friends, who complete my network of support, have similar values which makes us have a lot in common and I feel that is what drew us together.
I can’t think of anything that has been discussed that needs to be acted upon. The only thing that comes to mind is the hope that maybe something in my life has sparked your interest, inspired your actions, or given you something to think about that will improve your outlook and make you want to be a better person. I find strength and inspiration in those around me and strive to be a better person. My goal is to inspire and make a difference in someone’s life by even the smallest of gestures, such a smile.
