What I Know....

Today is my birthday.  I'm 31.  That's a bit hard for me to believe because I still feel like I'm about 24.  21 on a good day.  I don't mind though.  Really.  I'm content with where I'm at in life and who I'm with.  Birthdays kind of have a way of making you reflect on your life.  I wanted to make a list for myself of things I've learned in these 31 years.  I thought I'd share my list with you, since we're friends.  Here we go.

I know that I can learn something from every person.

I know that time heals wounds.

I know that the process of creating makes me feel deeply happy and close to God.

I know that we each have something important to do on this earth and I get excited when I feel like I'm figuring mine out.

I know that patience is one of the most divine qualities and I'm definitely still working on it.

I know that laughter makes everything more bearable.
I know I sleep well when I've accomplished a lot in a day.

I know that I shouldn't keep score.

I know that helping others is an important part of life.

I know I need to care less about what others think.

I know that each year of my life will pass faster than the one before.

I know that Rex and Baden were supposed to be mine.

I know that marrying Jeff was not only the right decision, but a privilege.

I know that I can change. 

I know that all I have comes from the Lord and He's pleased when I share it.

I'm excited to learn a whole lot more in my next 31 years.  What do you know?
