Why is that song Stuck in the Middle With You going through my head?

38 is so random. I am so glad I am 38 and (not) single. 38 and (not) a new mother. 38 and (not) trying to climb the corporate ladder. 38 and (not) scheduling a boob job and liposuction. I like exactly where I am. A mama of three. A wife of one. A friend of many. A teacher of a few.

There is so much I know from my life experience. And so much to still learn.

There is so much I have done in my life. And still so much to do.

My 37th year was a year of stepping outside of my box. So, it was a challenging year. A year I met a lot of new people. A year I discovered more of my strengths and weaknesses. A year of triumph! And a year of failure.

I made some new friends and re-connected with some old friends.

I laughed a lot. I cried a lot. I was probably angry too much.

My constant prayer was... "God. Love me. Lead me. Teach me. Show me." I continually asked for his blessings. His forgiveness. His protection of my children. His care for all of humanity.

I felt more walls coming down in my 37th year. (For those of you who know me well... I know.. you are rolling your eyes and laughing... "Good grief! What is she going to say now?") Reality is where I live. I can't help it. It's who I am.

I am. A servant of the Creator. A woman. A mama. A wife. A friend. A multi-tasker (with ADD). A volunteer. A girl with a camera. A thinker. A writer. A runner.

I don't know what lies ahead on this journey. But, I do know I am ready for another year of wonderful, mystical, never-a-dull-moment life!

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
