Our world is so big. I can’t wait to see more of it.
Tonight, I feel so blessed. I have the best husband. I brag about him a lot. Through all of the crazy things life will throw at us I feel just a bit better knowing I will have him by my side. I read today that “in a marriage you both can’t crumble at the same time…you have to wait your turn.” This made me laugh and cry at the same time. Just thinking about our first 5 months of marriage when I have a bad day Tom takes care of me. When he comes home fighting mad… I try to lift his spirits. Give and Take. There will come a day when I feel like I have nothing to brag about or hardships we will be faced with, but sometimes I need a simple reminder that my life is pretty amazing despite how sometimes even a cloudy day can turn my mood sour.
Here is the reality. I didn’t get the job I had “planned” in my head after college. I didn’t finish college in 4 years like I “planned” when I started it. I haven’t backpacked through Europe like I “planned”, or moved to Africa to live in a hut. I didn’t have a massive wedding in a castle like I “planned” when I was a little girl with 300 guests. I hate cooking most days, I really hate proof reading and editing (which is why I don’t do it on my blog)…and sometimes I forget to floss. My life isn’t completely “planned” and organized.
but if life worked out like I “planned” how boring would it be? I mean, really… if I finished college in 4 years I wouldn’t have been able to study abroad and see the world the way I see it now. If I had a wedding in a castle with 300 people I would have wasted thousands of dollars (and well that was just a dumb idea to start with.) I haven’t backpacked through Europe just yet, but we have way cooler plans now. My plan. See, I just did it again. We humans love to plan. I seriously, think God looks down and just laughs at me and my planning.
My life is pretty great. I love it… and the best part is that every single day no matter how my day is or if I love my life or not: God has loved me all along despite my non existent cooking or my desire and need to try to control and “plan” out my life.
