"Life will knock you down. You can choose to stand up again."

Have you seen this?

I have! One and a half times! Don't ask... Anywho, this movie is amazing and inspiring and it touched me on many different levels. If you don't know, it's a story (true story) of a girl, named Bethany, who is a surfer. She had her left arm bit off by a shark. She continued to surf, and became a professional surfer with one arm. What I love about this beautiful blonde girl is that she is faithful. She loves the Lord and knows that she is blessed in many different ways.

She talks about things like:
1. Don't give up, because you never know what the next wave might bring.
2. We can do all things, through our Savior.
3. It's all about perspective.

I got mail yesterday from Miss Birdie! It's my favorite kind of mail. In it, she wrote about persepective. She told me to take a minute and look back one year. Look at how far I have come!! Oh, so far. I am no longer drowning. I am actually holding my head above water! It's not easy, and I have my down moments, but my head is above water and I am doing it! One year ago, I was not able to do that. One year ago, I was in bad shape. But now, I am waiting to see what the next wave might bring!
