I had my 38th birthday recently.
I had such an amazing early birthday celebration that involved an awesome date with my husband to IKEA, lots of delicious buffalo wings (made by my husband), and watching the last Bourne movie.
I felt so loved and celebrated!
Unfortunately though, as we were winding down in the last hour of the Bourne movie, we got a text notification in the news that there was a horrific incident that happened in our resident country.
I LOVE all of my new random things from IKEA, but all I could think of at that moment was how blessed I am that all of my family and friends were safe and accounted for. That is not something to take for granted. As I begin a new year in life, I continue to realize that I already have all that I can wish for in life.
Jesus my Savior who loves me,
I have a wonderful husband,
5 beautiful and healthy children,
a loving extended family,
amazing friends around the world,
a warm and cozy apartment,
more than enough food each day,
the list could literally go on and on…
I am such a blessed woman!
Thank you to my family and friends, near and far, who make my life beautiful and rich. I truly have all a woman can ask for.
As I look ahead in life, through all of the inevitable highs and lows that come, I am so grateful for the HOPE that is in my heart this day and every day because of Jesus.
