Today I am 28 (woot woot!!)
No, I am not anxious that I am only 2 years away from 30
Though truth be told it does blow my mind that I am getting older
It feels like just yesterday that I was the nervous 16 year old gal standing in line at the DMV waiting to take my driver's test.
God continues to remind me that life is precious. Every minute of every day is precious.
Every day is special and deserves to be celebrated!
Today me and Daisy picked Joey up. He hadn't seen her in a week and was overjoyed when her smiling face peaked at him from around the corner. She wouldn't let him put her down! It was a very special morning!
What did I learn this past year?
That I am stronger than I thought I was!
That patience really is a virtue
That being a parent is the hardest thing I've ever experienced but, also the most meaningful, life changing and love awakening!
I've learned that I have the MOST AMAZING friends. I have truly been overwhelmed by the love and support that my friends have shown me during this season.
I've learned that after having kids it is even harder to live so far away from my family in California. I want them here all the time now more than ever!! I'm sure a lot of you can relate.
That I didn't get married to have a perfect life. I got married to have an amazing best friend to journey through life's ups and downs with. It's as close to perfect as it gets!
That Jesus is the sweetest name I know
Also want to shout out to all other April birthdays! My dear Grandma had a birthday a few days ago. Happy Birthday Grammy! April is such a beautiful month to be born. Spring is awakening and the sun is shining!
