You may think this is silly, but the fact my boyfriend went romantic and gave me a dozen roses but also went on the other spectrum and gave me reservoir dogs on dvd, is the most amazing thing in the world*. He knows me so well. The way to my heart is in fact Tarantino. Couldn’t ask for a better man in my life :)
*There was more to my gift for those of you who are are still wondering.
There’s still alot of things I am unhappy about, including some mornings I wake up and dislike what I do for my job. I think everyone feels that way some days though.
But deep down, God has me where I need to be and I am mostly content in that I am following His will.
I have a great boyfriend who is a strong man of God and challenges me to be a better woman for God. He holds me accountable and encourages me and most of the time, he probably doesn’t even realize it.
I have a great family. Encouragers, prayer warriors, but most of all people who love me for who I am and pick me up when I’ve had a bad day. As I’ve gotten older, my parents especially are becoming some of my greatest friends. Who knew that they actually knew what they were talking about?
My group of friends are unbelievable. I am at this point where I can honestly say that these friendships will last. God has blessed me in a group of incredible people. I plan on vacationing with quite a few of them at some point and my kids will marry theirs. Can’t wait to be related to the Naveys.
I have a great job. It’s not easy, in fact some days it really stinks. But my students are unbelievable and I am surrounded with some great support and friends. I couldn’t imagine teaching anywhere else. Plus it’s really nice to get a big girl paycheck and no more college.
I could continue. I probably should. But I just had a love burst for the most incredible things in my life and had to share.
Thank you Lord for your blessings.
The next step toward adulthood is upon me.
I opened a savings account and made a monthly budget today.
