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?
