. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Turning Thirty

November 2, 2014

Turning Thirty

 

Today is my 30th birthday. Let's just skip over the fact that I still have some progress to do on my 13 by 30 list.  Thank goodness I stopped at 13.  I should've added text my sister a hundred times a day or watch four seasons of gilmore girls in a month to the list, but that'd be embarrassing.  

Thoughts on being 30?  I'm happy.  I feel lucky and grateful and am beyond thankful for the place where God has me right now.  Being at home with Addilyn, Chris doing well with his business, loving our house and grateful for the community around me.  I have lonely days and plenty of things that make me anxious.  Ways I could be a better wife, a better friend, and surely lots of ways I could grow in my relationship with God.  But I'm working on it.  Working on giving up control, being content with my circumstances and being thankful for all the things God's given us.  Letting things go, gaining confidence in my role as a mom, and lots more trusting in God.  

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes! Cheers to a new year!
