This time last year I was a bit of a wreck. I was a new mother of a 6 month old, working, and things in my marriage were rough (not rough in the way the world would view it, but things were definitely not optimal). My wish for my birthday last year was for happiness and contentment. Well apparently I wasn't specific with which birthday I wanted happiness and contentment to fall on, because it didn't happen last year.
I am glad to report that the happiness and contentment has come......one year later! That's right, on the eve of my 24th birthday, I am realizing just how happy and content I am. Things are FANTASTIC with Jason and I. My daughter, despite the normal outbursts of emotion, is absolutely perfect in my eyes. I am getting in shape and feel great. My house has never been cleaner. I have new passions and desires for things that I enjoy doing. I have developed a deeper walk with God than I ever thought possible. The best part, you may ask? I do it ALL without feeling like I have neglected something or someone!
So is it truly because I am one year older? Doubt it. Is it because my circumstances have changed? Maybe. I am not really sure why the change has occurred, but I am glad it did. I feel fabulous!
Here's to the next year full of:
*a house full of home-made crafts
*a bible falling apart due to being opened often
*a marriage full of fun and romance
*a child who becomes smarter due to my interactions with her
*and happiness and contentment that lasts the whole year long!
Happy Birthday to me!
