27 years

After 27 years, I've...


...grown to appreciate the childhood I had.


...realized that after years of school, I still have so much to learn.


...been blessed indescribably with such wonderful family and friends.


...learned what true, God-sent love is.


...been out of our country, and learned to be even more thankful for the USA.


...promised never to take the special love from my husband for granted...even for a second.


...seen how much a child can change your life.


...experienced my heart growing more than imaginable with each child God has blessed us with.


...accepted that life isn't always what we think it should be...and learned that we serve a great God who has a perfect plan for us, even when we can't see it.


...determined to live each day as if it were the last day God gave me.


...come to accept that I am not and will never be "Super Mom", but with God's help will do my best to balance cooking, cleaning, teaching, and playing each and every day God gives me.


...been amazed at how much more deeply I fall in love with the love of my life each and every day. I am so thankful for the love story God wrote for me and Mark.


...been blessed beyong measure to be celebrating 27 years of life.


...almost burned the house down with all of my 27 candles! :)
