Another Year Older

So I was just looking at my blog reading the "about me" section and saw that I was "a 27 year old paralegal". I was so thrilled until I remembered that I was no longer 27, I am 28! But 28 is like the new 21, right? No, not so much! I am getting up THERE!

So I began to think about what I done in my grand 28 years of life, but when you put it all together, there is still much to accomplish! But regardless of what I have or haven't done in my 28 years, there are events that have changed me and made me who I am today.
  1. Accepting the Lord as my Savior at a young age and learning to love Him more each and every day.
  2. Going to the Orphanage Emmanuel in Guiamaca, Honduras for 2 months after college. Working with, caring for and loving 200+ children was exhausting, but yet the more rewarding time of my life, thus far!
  3. Marrying the love of my life in 2007 made me realize that I am not perfect and he is not perfect, but that God truly made us perfect for each other.
  4. Experiencing and battling infertility for over a year - this has made me rely so heavily on the Lord knowing that everything truly is in his hands. This has given me such a tender heart for women struggling with infertility and for mothers who have lost children.
  5. Meeting the Mitchells - the couple I met on a plane home to Texas from San Diego who had just found out their son had been shot, and later found out had died once we landed. God really does have a purpose in everything...even who we sit by on planes.
These few events have impacted my life in such a way that it changed me - it became another fabric in the tapestry my life is weaving.

What events have changed you?

30 is the new 21....so you are still a baby. LOL

I need to sit back and evaluate the good in my life. It is so easy *unfortunately* to dwell in the bad.
