Recently I found the trophy section on WordPress. Turns out I have been blogging for a little over a year now. This fact sent me into a spiral of contemplating the last year, my children’s quality of life, and my childhood. It also meant beginning to get in contact with those whom I have lost contact. Some of you may be reading this now. Some of you may have gotten personal messages from me on FB or in e-mail. Perhaps an invitation to connect on LinkedIn. All of you matter to me.
What I have realized since beginning this journey into the past is that I would not change a moment. Yes, there has been heartache. Yes, there have been trials. My life has taken turns and directions I never would have thought possible.
Most importantly, there has been love.
The love of a God who is greater than I. A God who is forgiving when I recognize my faults and am willing to change.
The love of a husband who is Christ-like. A man I prayed for. A man who far exceeds what I thought I needed.
The love of two beautiful boys. They are so like their father; intelligent beyond comprehension, compassionate, and full of life.
The love of my beloved pets.
The love of my family and friends.
The love of those I am privileged to minister to and with.
Thank you for being a part of my journey the last year. I hope you continue to walk along side me.
