So, here I am at the brink of no longer being 30 but being in my 30's. AAAHHHHHHHH! No really, I'm not worried. I'm sitting here thinking about the past year. My God, there have been some definite up's and down's, but for some unkown reason, here I am a year later and breathing in the sweet moments of life. Stress? Well, there are always some lingering in the backround, but for today, this very momoent, I am just content. I am in what I like to refer to as "a good place" in my life. I'm happier than I have been in a very long time, but I'm not exactly sure what has brought about that change. I find myself smiling more these days and laughing a lot. Maybe it's because for once, I am not completely focused on our finances or the lack of. Maybe it's because I am loving every second with that husband of mine. Maybe it's because I have wonderful people in my life who love me, faults and all. Or maybe I have been able to look at the bigger picture and have made the concious decision not to sweat the small stuff. We've been attending a new church and I wouldn't say that it was officially home yet, but it has definitely brought about a feeling of a clean slate, free of all the baggage and histories that came along with past attendance at churches. Not to say that they were bad, because they absolutely aren't, but it's nice to have a fresh start with fresh faces in life.
So, on Friday, I welcome 31 and smile knowing that the best is yet to come and holding on tightly to the wonderful moments that make up my life today.
