My jump to twenty-five seems to have flown by in an instant. Here I am another year older. I stumbled upon a photo taken of me two years ago today, and man does it have me thinking.
Two-years-ago-birthday-me reminds me of how much life has changed since then. Such a short time it seems, but life is nowhere close to the same. Since that day, two years ago, I’ve seen struggle; been at my lowest. But I’ve also risen. I’ve been strong and overcome- even when I thought I couldn’t. The girl in this photo didn’t know what she was capable of or how self-pursuit would change her life. She had no clue what life had in store. But two years has passed. And now, after yet another turn about the sun, I feel proud of me, what I’ve been through, and who I become each any every day. Also, emotional. I feel pregnant and emotional, ha!
I’m thankful for everyone who’s been with me on this path these past few years.
I'm thankful for my family, who loves and supports me through all of my endeavors- even from so far away.
I'm thankful for my friends who have shown me in the past few years what lifetime friendships look like.
I'm thankful for my husband who gives me the kind of love and devotion some only dream of (and who also spoils me rotten!)
I'm thankful for my son and my growing daughter who have given my life a meaning I never thought possible.
And I'm thankful that I get to live to see yet another beautiful year pass by.
This year has brought me some of the best moments of my life. I can't wait to see what else life has in store.
One more rotation for me. And I am so truly blessed.
