Well, hello 39!!!

 
I would say the year flew by, but then again I think you all know that.  Where has the time gone?

I feel like just yesterday I was writing a post up about turning 38 years old, but now here I am, turning 39, just one year away from the big 4 0.  It doesn't scare me, matter of fact I'm so excited for this age and for what is to come.

So what I have learned?  Oh boy.  So very much. 

Good things have happened, bad things have happened, things that have broken my heart have happened but they've all made me who I am.  This morning I woke up and the very first thing I did was thank God for bringing me to this point and for the past 39 years of my life.

I thanked him for EVERYTHING.....and I mean everything, not just the good, but even the sad moments and the ups and downs.  I am thankful for it all because each moment we live is a lesson, every single thing we do, every single tear we cry, and even every "I can't take it anymore".

What you do with it all is up to you.  I choose to live it, learn it, and love it.

This next year I have no idea what is coming my way.  I used to cringe and I used to be terrified of what may come, and then I learned to just accept it.

Every single line on my face, every wrinkle, tells a story.


And I wouldn't have it any other way.

So, let's see what is in the future and where this road takes me.  One thing is for sure, as long as I have this man beside me, I can take it all with a smile on my face. :)
