Sitting here in awe of what life has been these 34 years.
If you met me through social media or an event we probably keep in touch with all the pretty photos I choose to post of my life with my husband and two beautiful kids. It might look picture perfect on the squares but God knows where he has carried me through as a woman and a mom.
The lessons learned have come with the ups and downs that God has allowed me to live. It’s built this lioness of a woman in me and I’ve learned to be confident and prudent in my own skin. With age I’ve learned to not look for my happiness in others but in myself. That I am a daughter of a King and in Him is where my trust is. I was taught at a young age to dream big and declare great things… and I’ll tell you that God has been faithful!
Being a wife for the past 9 years… yup that has molded me. The love that this man has showed towards me… The hustle and love for his family moves me. Thank you my dear.
Becoming a mom almost seven years ago… has turned life upside down. I laugh because prior to having kids I thought I knew myself. The sleepless nights, endless birthday parties and seeing life through their eyes moves me to my core. I don’t take being their mom for granted one bit, I need them as much as they need me. I prayed for them and my husband when I was a little girl, I’m living my dream. (okay now I’m crying)
For my family and friends that have seen me grow up and have done life with me YOU are part of the reason I dream out loud, YOU are the reason I love so hard. When it comes to family and friendships, If there is a life lesson I can pass on to one of you… It’s to love and cherish those that love and cherish you and your time.
To the future, I see you … I’ve prayed for you and know what is to come. Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future".
