Today I have walked upon this earth amongst the Earth beside the Lord for 32 years today. My dear Grandmother has also walked upon this Earth beside the Lord for 70+ years. I was born about 2pm-ish on a Tuesday afternoon. They say that Tuesday’s child is full of grace…
For most of my mid teens and adult life I have struggled with physical/health problems and overcome some but still have many more to overcome. There are still goals I need to accomplish that I wanted to accomplish prior to turning 30 years old that include getting married, kids, getting a book published, losing weight owning a home with land, barn, and some animals. However, the kids are going to have to wait a few more years because we are going to have to adopt, which means things having to be re-ordered. We are finally getting married this August though.
I have learned a lot in my 32 years though not just on my own but through other people. I owe a lot to my parents, my grandparents, my fiancee, my dearest few close friends, my family, and those that I have met online. I have grown in areas from my spiritual life to homemaking to writing. All to which I am very thankful. Last and certainly not least, I have to thank the Lord, who has always been my side, through thick and thin.
I also have to thank my wonderful fiancee, Chris. He has been there with me every minute through every struggle, every moment of joy. He has accepted me as I am. Chris loves me despite every fault. That I am imperfect. And that means the world to me.
I still have more than half my life to accomplish my goals. But I want to do them whilst I am young. So I enjoy them and reveal in them. I sit here at quarter to 11 here in the morning on a chilly 19F WNY snowy morning and try not to dwell on my past failures and the things I still need to do. 32 is just another number. Rather instead, I sit here and count my blessings. The fact that I have a warm house, a soft blanket to cuddle with, the bestest fiancee in the world, a step son, and a family that love me dearly, and the bestest best friend in the whole world. I couldn’t ask for anything more. 🙂
Happy Birthday to anyone else celebrating their birthday today and everyone else, please have a blessed Sunday and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
