53

Today is a special day.

Happy Anniversary to my grandparents… 53 years down and forever more to go.

I am thankful for them and so proud to be their granddaughter. Whatever these next few months may hold, of two things I’m sure: they love God and God loves them.

You reflect me, I love that about you

Yesterday I listened to Justin Timberlake practically all day. Nothing compares to the classics and nothing compares to being able to enjoy music. I remember a time it made my stomach hurt to listen to certain songs and genres so I kept my distance from it all together. I guess that’s when you know they really broke your heart- when you can’t even stand music. Thankfully that storm has passed and in the blizzard, I was singing, dancing, and feeling so at peace. A winter wonderland for sure and I didn’t mind one bit.

REWIND 01

We all have our own lives, our own journeys. I’m simply trying to embrace mine no matter what it looks like. Some of it I love and other parts hurt my heart so bad. All in all, I am thankful for God’s comfort during a time where it is extremely needed but very undeserved.

I am excited to soon welcome my baby into the world. I think about he or she every single day. The desire to protect your baby at all times begins pretty early. I don’t even have him or her in my arms and I’m always ready to be a safe haven for my baby.

No one is going to make my child feel unwanted. No one is going to treat him or her as if they don’t matter  in this life. My baby will know true love. My baby will know God. My baby will know happiness. My baby will know peace. My baby will know what it’s like to have a real family.

My child will know security and loyalty the very moment we make eye contact.

My child is the light in my life. I pray protection and a covering from the Lord every day. I need my child as much as he or she needs me.

My child keeps me aware of my journey. My child is already teaching me to embrace all that is mine for this time on Earth. I don’t own a thing- my heart knows that full well. But while I am here, I will embrace my life. I will love my journey. God has been good to me and I have to believe that greater things are coming, no matter how life looks right now.
