I have been waiting for this day for a long time!
Today I am 25 on the 25th of August.
To be honest, it kind of snuck up on me—when I was younger I dreamt about this day, and in the past few years (and especially crazy months), it simply escaped my mind. This day was a big deal for me growing up because most of my siblings have “earlier” birthdays…
Megan on the 11th, Michael on the 12th, Mel on the 5th …
Mitchel is the only one who will have to wait longer than me (29th).
I feel for ya’ bud.
You’re nearly halfway there!
I guess I expected some kind of milestone, something magical or amazing to happen; then today just showed up at my door, discreetly. I feel so unprepared, jilted almost when I look for that mystical element to appear.
I never dreamed Mason and I would be married.
I definitely never dreamed I would be living in Korea, on the same building and floor as my parents.
I never dreamed I would be in a new job as a preschool Director. Oh, and did I mention launching the preschool from scratch? Yeah, this girl is NO pioneer!
I never dreamed that after only 2 years in student ministry God would call us away from traditional church ministry roles.
I never dreamed that we would settle as a married couple in TX only to move halfway around the world and try to re-settle.
I never dreamed that we would sell our car and truck to move to a country where we walk or take public transportation.
I never dreamed I would be in a place where I can’t find deodorant around the corner.
I don’t think I ever knew what to dream…
I always dreamed about working with friends from college.
I only ever dreamed about living near family—as an Expat/TCK family, this usually remains a dream!
I always dreamed about how my knowledge of and love for Korea would be used later on.
I always dreamed about my passion for Biblical Counseling being put to use.
I always dreamed about ministering with Mason beyond the United States.
Happy Birthday to me—I ultimately LOVE living the dream God has for my life!
