Today I turn 35 years old.
Am I sad about getting older? I really don’t think so. I think there is a bit of sadness that comes from saying goodbye to a sweet chapter in my life, but I am excited for this next season of my life!
I don’t feel like I have missed out on the best years of my life like one may be inclined to think when they hear I was sixteen years old when I gave birth to my daughter.
I have been taking an honest look at my life recently. It has been an adventure. Most days I sit in awe of the fact that this is really even my life I am living.
I am SO thankful for every single thing that I have been shown and learned in my life. And that He has chosen for ME to carry this part of HISstory!
It is hard to believe where I began my life in this world compared to where I am today.
You can read my Story of Grace posts to get a better idea of what I’m talking about. It amazes me how much my life has been filled with grace from the very first day I was conceived.
I don’t ever want to look back at my life and feel as though I had done nothing with it. Life is a precious gift and I need to remember that each and every day.
And at the end of the day my only hope is that I have made my Father smile by something I have done.
