It’s my birthday week, and while there is so much happening in our world that impacts each of us in a multitude of ways, there is still so much I’m grateful for.
I have a loving husband, kids, mom, extended family, and my fur babies.
I’m in remission with my autoimmune diseases. While I still have bad days, the good ones overshadow them.
I’m growing my career with education to continue chasing my dreams.
I have a loving roof over my head, cozy clothes on my back, and inner peace about things I cannot control.
It might not sound like much, but for me, life has given me more than I’ve ever prayed for.
I’ve “socially distanced” myself IRL and digitally with COVID to focus on family and my faith. I’m re-emerging into the world with a renewed sense of contentment and optimism. I’m ready to shed the 37-year-old shell to joyfully leap into 38 with all the hope I can muster.
Cheers to this wild journey we call life!
