A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was create
This is 30.
I learned a lot about myself and grew more as a person than I ever thought I would in my twenties. I became a mom. Quit school, finished school, quit career, & started a business. I failed at things and succeeded at some too. I dug myself out of a pretty dark depression at one point, celebrated many highs, lived through some lows, and realized less is more in our circle and how to say no. Not everyone is your friend but that handful of people who have your back no matter what are and they’re your family too. Cherish them.
I grew in my marriage that I’m so blessed to have. I learned a lot about truth & theology and felt like the scales fell right off my eyes these last 5 years. I have so much more growth needed in that area and felt like I started all over but others can’t make a relationship with Christ for you. The church can’t. Worship music can’t. And don’t believe what every person at the pulpit is saying. Read the Bible yourself and let God tell you what He says.
We started our registered cattle herd, my favorite days were spent with my little family, even better if our cow ponies were involved. We have set some big goals for our next decade, I have a lot of physical personal goals ahead of me, and if this is as good or as far as I get, I’m thankful, blessed, and content. I’ve been given more than I ever deserved because what I deserve is nothing. Thank you Lord for all of my days, let me never lose sight of the gift they are and continue to teach me to number them.
I’m truly excited for this next chapter. I feel more confident than I ever have in who I am and my character. I have the best friends anyone could ask for and the most precious family. Having to grow up and do a lot of the “big life things” young, can be tough. I wouldn’t change a thing though. It’s molded me into what I am now and His purpose always exceeds my plans. These next 10, I’m pouring into all of the good things and people in our life and am so thankful for all that I have.
It’s how you ride the trail that counts.
Two of my best friends, Jess and Tiffany, sent me a package in the mail that absolutely blew me away. Other than my horse, I’ve never been gifted anything more thoughtful. They had me facetime them when it arrived and as soon as I opened it, I was so shocked and immediately burst into tears.
They asked my friend Talia who did all of the original art if they had permission to use it, used one of my favorite quotes, my Indian paintbrush flowers, put our family’s life verse on it as well as our ranch brand.
I’ve said this often but I truly don’t know how I’d do this life without those two. There’s rarely a day we go without talking. They are two of the greatest treasures of my life. We pour into our friendship and it shows. I love you both so much and this gift touched me. Thank you for walking alongside me through marriage, motherhood, home school, hard times, good times, and just life with me. Thank you for praying over me. Thank you for being real. Friends like these two are rare. If you’re lucky to find just one, hang on to them. This Oklahoma girl loves her Texas besties.
Bring on 30!
