"I am a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn't have the heart to let him down...”   Abraham Lincoln

People really make all the difference in life. We ran into some French people today who stopped....took time....to not just help us but to make sure we were okay. One lady not only directed us but turned back to wish us a bon nuit....a good night. Her smile was the best. Grateful for

-people who make a difference....especially the kindness of strangers
-fun in Paris...loved seeing the Eiffel Tower all lit up and sparkle and the amazing grandness of buildings
-standing in front of the Mona Lisa with tons of people from all over the globe. The painting itself is really small.....
-hotel in Paris.....feels royal with the amazing bedding and all the perks.
-my girls who have made this trip especially fun
-mostly that He's here with us

Hi Sarah,

That's awesome your in Paris. I am so jealous. You really have some awesome things to be thankful for. The awesomest is that God with with you. I was just telling my Sunday School kindergartners that God is with you no matter what you're doing or where you are. You certainly proved this. Ahhh! It's good to be back in the blogging world.

Hugs and blessings,
Amanda
