Elizabeth Smart is my Hero of the Year. Like most people around here, I've been following the trial closely. While reading about the horrible things that happened during her captivity I've literally had to close my computer and walk away because I just couldn't read anymore. I remember her kidnapping very clearly. I remember praying and fasting for her safe return. I remember talking endlessly with friends and family about all the mysterious details surrounding her disappearance. I also remember being shocked to my core when she was found 9 months later. Of course I don't know her personally, but I believe her to be an amazing woman who will continue to lead and inspire others for the rest of her life. She is truly an inspiration to me. I think all of us feel the victory right along with her. Today's verdict has been a long time coming for Elizabeth, her family, and this whole community. I keep welling up with tears. I am so happy for her.
I'd love to know, who is your Hero of the Year? If you post about it, send me a link!
I do my very best on this blog to make us look perfect and insanely happy in every way. Which, indeed we are. However, you should also know that sometimes we disagree, we don't get everything we want or everything we pray for, I'm not a size 2, and our sink leaks. Amid all the craziness every day brings, we live each knowing that life is fair, it's just not over yet.
