Another year under my belt


It's my birthday!

Yes, another whole year has gone by and I'm about to start another one.

Wow the things I have learned, the things I have gone through, the things I have seen for myself and been shown by others. The faith that has steadily grown and the stumbling I'm still doing.

So many things happened in my 37th year of life. So many more will happen this coming year and the others after that.


The one thing that resonates the most within me, is that I'm blessed.

So extremely blessed and loved.

I am one lucky girl. Not only do I have an amazing creator who loves me unconditionally, but I'm surrounded by an amazing husband that loves me and takes care of me, and supports me and cheers me on in everything I do.....I have the best kids in the world, the best family and the best friends, and yes I include my bloggy friends in that list because you all are amazing too :)


I've decided that this year I am NOT going to be a worrier.  I'm not going to worry about the what if's or the what may come's.  I need to live life to the fullest and think positively, to smell the fresh air, and to enjoy the blue sky.

38 years old.   Just two shy of 40.

Wow my 30's have flown by at what seems like the speed of light.....

I think there's still going to be a lot of reflecting coming up


Lots of early morning coffee cups


And many more wrinkles to add to the ones already on my face.  


But I'm going to welcome them all with open arms.  Why?  Because it means I'm alive, it means I'm allowed to grow old with my beautiful family and I'll have many more years on this blog, to talk, to share, to encourage and to support you all :)

So onwards and forwards, time to get my butt in gear and work towards making my 38th year the best one yet.
