This week I entered my 38th year. I’ve learned some things in that time.
- Life is about love.
- Loss never heals, but it does stop being as intense.
- Growth and growing are what I want.
- Mary’s cloak of protection is around us even when we don’t realize it.
- I can have faith and still not be perfect. That’s what grace is about. This perfectionist soul needs to let some stuff go.
My birthday was wonderful. You see, every birthday is a reminder of how far I’ve come. In 2010, I spent my 30th birthday in the hospital because I was sick. I’m glad to be 8 years past what thought would be the last weekend of my life. Life is good. Very good.
