Gratitude to God

My story is that I have turned 50 years of age today, I am very thankful to our Heavenly Father, God, our Lord and Savoir, Jesus Christ, our Blessed Mother Mary, and the power of the Holy Spirit.
My life in the past 25 years have been a struggle yet with the love of the Holy Family first, my children and I have survived. The Devil still tries to take away my joy, and make me suffer but I have stood still and held on to my faith in God, and will continue to do so.
This may not seem like a story that is filled with inspiration but it is, for my life is still financially a struggle but I have two beautiful and wonderful teenagers who have made me proud and I know it is God's love in them and my Mother, Sister, Brother, and deceased Father, and my cousins and neighbors who have helped us because of God's love.
I may not have money but my children, and loved ones have God and the Holy Family in our lives. Thanks be to God, Amen.
