Hey, so I turned 28 on Monday! And I'd like to get introspective about it, if you don't mind.
My 27 was a year of strengthening:
building my business (there are many things going on behind the scenes, and it's grown more than I could have imagined),
learning evermore about my husband and my marriage and who I want to be as a wife,
investing more deeply in my most meaningful friendships,
finding physical healing from the back problems that had been causing me a great deal of pain (when I had reached a point that I wasn't sure I would ever feel good again),
becoming a scholar of the Word rather than just an occasional browser.
27 very much felt like a gearing up year, a year of getting ready and getting prepared. And I feel like I am.
28 is going to be a year of change:
new time zone,
owning a car again for the first time in four years,
starting our life as a military family,
transitioning from being a dental student's wife to a dentist's wife (I still can't believe we're almost at the end of this road).
A total shake-up of all that we've known for the past four years is coming for us as we leave this era of our life and dive head first into a whole new one.
Thank you, 27, for helping me get strong. 28, I can't wait to see where you take me. I hope you exceed my wildest expectations.
