I am less than 30 days from my 42nd year on earth. Wow! As a teen, I never thought I would make it to this age in life. As a teenager, I just didn’t see or feel my life was worth it. I picked myself up so many times. The only reason why I am alive is God had better plans for me than I had for myself. I just need to keep letting God use me. As I look at this picture. I realize I am more than this smile and mouth full of teeth. As I’m going through a big dental struggle, I realize that I am still the same beautiful person that you see in this picture.
