There is always something to be thankful for.

Life is too short to make a big deal out of everything.  Do your best and God will take care of the rest.

The greatest is love. 

You are much more than the number on a scale or the tag size on an article of clothing.  Lisa Jo Baker said so.  (So.Much.More.)

The truest thing about you is who God says you are.  I am redeemed, forgiven, not condemned, and beloved.

Giving your life in service and sacrifice to your family is not a waste.

Your children each have their own free will, their own soul in need of salvation, and you are not the Holy Spirit in their lives.  Their decisions are not a reflection of your failure (see Adam & Eve).

As much as you love and want the best for your children, God loves them more.

Every day is a gift.
