If ten years ago anyone had asked me where and what I would be today, I would have given many probable answers, including, happily married, with several kids, doing what I love the most. I realize now what a blessed person I am because each and every one of those answers are true. Last Friday Jeff and I celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary. It was bitter cold, just like ten years ago, but now, instead of just being the two of us, there are four other little people (and two dogs) that make our lives full of happiness and love. We spent the evening watching our beautiful Swan Princess dance in The Nutcracker as a Cookie. She looked so small and young in that huge stage, but she did such a great job! Who knows! Maybe in ten years she will be Clara or the Sugar Plum Fairy… For now she’s our precious little girl, all spunk and tenderness.
We spent a wonderful week, going to Boondocks for family night, visiting Santa’s reindeer at Thanksgiving Point. We went to see “A Christmas Carol,” and we had a blast.
The kids had parties at school, and piano recital, and they’re growing way too fast!
Our Chubbers turned two, and she had a ladybug themed birthday party. How much fun she had!
School is over, piano lessons on hold, Nutcracker is done, so now we just have to wait for Christmas day to arrive, and I look around and I see that all the things I could ask for, I already have, and I am so grateful to Father for his love and blessings.
The highlight of our year is almost here, and I could not imagine being happier. I have the most beautiful kids, the most loving husband who still makes me laugh and brings me flowers every week, I do what I love, I am a mother and I finally wrote my book. I imagine the next ten years and I am excited. Who knows what adventures await me… I can’t wait!
