I turn 40!
Remember, last year I had a list of 39 things I had learned? I'm sure I've learned at least one more this year. Perhaps it's just to be reminded again of how blessed I am.
Today I will get up early, spend time with my Lord, and drive carpool.
I will go to the gym and workout with friends. We are uber-rebels because we talk in class.
I will be a PTA mom at lunch time and help out with a rewards system for the 8th graders, catching a glimpse of Ashley as she shuffles by.
This evening I am free of volleyball, but there is an athletics meeting, followed by Open House to meet all of the kids' teachers.
Somehow in there we have to fit in a soccer practice.
I think at some point today, another A Better View podcast will be posted.
Tomorrow, I leave with Coffee Group to go talk to women in central Texas about Amazing Freedom in Christ.
This may sound horrendous to you. It's pretty much all I have ever wanted to do in life: be a mom and wife, and help other women see Jesus in their every day. I simply can't believe that God picked me to live this life.
I wish someone had told me how many blessings come with 40. I think I would have gotten here sooner. The only thing that's missing from my day is a date with my man. We will have to schedule one for... 2012 looks good... :-)
If you have a little time on your hands today and want to know things about me and see pictures of me that only a lifelong friend can muster up, you've gotta check out Roxanne's post commemorating this day. Bless.
