Reflecting today

I woke up this morning feeling philosophical.  Today marks a milestone birthday.  I was thinking about what I have accomplished so far in this life.  The things I consider most important, I cannot take credit for.  Such as my wonderful Husband of 17 years.  I cannot act like I hand picked him and delivered him to myself.  I can only speculate that he is mine due to prayerful grandparents, and the will of my Heavenly Father, who in all perfectness, desired this man to be my life mate.  In regard to my children, the beautiful young woman they are becoming is due to the prayerful petitions for guidance from the Lord, then acting upon the direction I receive, and also for the parenting example I was raised with.  To my career.  I had not had a direction as to what my career should be until 2 years ago, and even then it was a prayerful choice to end up as a personal fitness trainer.  When I think of my experiences in life, what I have been through, and the decisions I have made-good and bad- I can only come to the conclusion that my career now would not have been right for me had I pursued it any earlier in life.

So, today I will celebrate with friends and family the day I was born the first time, with a very thankful heart, and a joy that is inexpressible and full of glory.  I will continue to reflect on where I have come, and where I will go.  This life has been good to me…sometimes I think too good.  Though I do not wish pestilence or peril on myself, I do desire to do more of the humble, selfless things in this life that bless others and make change that can only be made through divine inspiration.

Thank you for reading.
