28 years young...
Today, i'm 28 years old and as I've pondered how I've actually spent my last 28 years- legacy's left... successes under the belt... etc... I've realized that at one point I had dreams... lofty dreams - a degree in Business... starting my own photography company specializing in Architectural photography, etc...and looking back I don't see that many of those were accompolished, in fact I only have a degree in Photography, not business, I started and then shut down my own business where I specialized in Senior Photographs.... and yet while it's soo easy to perhaps feel like a failer... I don't. It just took me a while to realize that though those dreams didn't come true that I've succeeded in so many other areas of my life. I'm a wife of almost 7 years to my very best friend in the world. I am a mother of 2 beautiful little girls! My little girly girls that just proves that God has a sense of humor by giving me such girly girls...Despite knowing that it is soo easy sometimes to think that I don't really have a life, that I'm not that important in the grand scheme of things and then I realize that what I do IS important. It's probably the most important thing I've ever done! I am not putting stock in money or my job or power but in my future and the future of so many more people then I would have had I stuck to my plans by influencing and teaching my girls the most important of things - the fact that we do serve a loving God, that Love is really the most important thing and that we need to treat others the way we need to be treated, that money isn't all there is and that truly family is soo important as are friends, that personal success is measured in how close we are to God and that if we live a life destined by Him we will all be successes! I've realized that if I had accompolished those other dreams of mine, I would have missed out on the best thing that ever happened to me. So as I look back today I'm going to thank God that my plans aren't His plans and He has soo spoiled me with this life I've been blessed with. So, here's to another 28 years of living a Blessed and successful life and being soo very spoiled by a Very Loving God!
My life is blessed! I've been married to the man of my dreams for 7 years though it feels like just yesterday! I love reading and taking pictures, but the best job I never imagined loving this much is staying at home with my two beautiful little girls!
