T h i r t y S i x

I turned thirty six several weeks ago. Surrounded by people I love...and a new little life growing in my belly. It was a simple, beautiful day. I'm not really into crowds or big parties, so a few of my favorite people gathered around the table for a few of my favorite meals...that's my happy place. 

Life isn't perfect. It's full of chaos and crazy and pain and confusion...but there's still beauty and magic and miracles and so much goodness. There's grace and mercy and love. Unconditional, amazing, life-sustaining love. 

I look around sometimes and reflect on the blessings showered throughout my life, and I think to myself...I don't deserve one bit of this sweet Lord, but my goodness I am so very thankful for it all. My cups runneth over.  To God be the glory and praise and all my love for all my life.
