Funny How Thing Come to be

It's funny how in just a year things can change.
Life is COMPLETELY different!
Priorities, relationships, responsibility and even what you see for yourself.
Good, bad, and some in between.
Life sure is a journey.
For instance...
I'm pretty sure no one really reads my blog anymore. Unlike a year ago.
I have learned to "play" with my kids in a way I wouldn't have a year ago.
I've seen relationships grow and have sadly seen some go through a time of separation.
And in the last few months alone, I have had new goals and dreams for my life.
Funny how things come to be...

There are strides I'm trying to make, both personally and spiritually.
A year ago I struggled with my blog being a source of self worth.
FOR ME... it held be back from letting God be the source of explaining who I am to Him.
God had to knock me off my high horse and put me in my place.
Boy did He do that!
I have more of an imagination then ever before.
With a little crazy boy by my side you have to be on your toes.
Either playing pirates on the playground or playing Toy Story inside,
There is lots of fun to be had in our home.

We all walk threw our own season in life.
For me it has been a looonngggg, hard walk.
From praising God for what He has done with my marriage.
To grieving the relationship I once had only a year ago.
Emotional in both aspects, but always seeing growth in a positive way.
I have more passion then ever before to make something of my life.
I don't want to be the perfect mom, because no one is perfect.
I want to be the best mom for MY kids. Period.

I want to have a bakery one day.
A place where I can be creative and make special cakes for the people I love most!
And also serve our community through my work.

I want to take photography classes.
Right now, I am educated by Goggle University.
Not bad, when you want to get something done...
but I know there is something I'm missing and can always learn.

That is certainly something I have more of this year.
And that is something I can be proud of.
Funny how things come to be.

Gina said...

I second Lauren's comment!

Patience said...

I still read your blog although I don't comment as much as I should. Good for you and this new found peace you have. We all have trials in life and it amazes me how we all have our ah ha moment when things seem to make sense and there is comfort when we know we are exactly where we should be.

Have I told you lately how very, very proud of you Dad and I are? And how very much we adore you? You are an incredible young woman. You are beautiful inside and out. You are like a flower who allows God to crush you so that the sweet perfume pours out all the more. (okay, I am allergic to perfume but you know what I mean). Watching you grow in Lord and as a wife and mother is one of the greatest joys of my life.
