This Past Decade....

Can you believe that an entire DECADE has passed since the"new millennium"? I've been thinking about the past 10 years and I do believe this decade has been filled with the most growth and change in my life (granted I've only been around for 2 1/2 decades, but still).
In the past 10 years I started High School, had a first kiss, attended prom's, celebrated my sweet 16, went from being in love with NSYNC to totally digging the Dave Matthews Band, had braces or a retainer for half the time, learned to drive, registered to vote, traveled to Boston, Maine, and Korea, and several other fun places, visited Disney World over 25 times, graduated High School, got my first job, attempted college, welcomed two baby sisters, met my future husband, participated in 6 Peachtree Road Races, trained and completed my first, and likely last, olympic sized triathlon, went to dozens of concerts (faves being Paul McCartney, John Mayer, DMB, Elton John, Billy Joel, and Rod Stewart), got engaged, became a wife, bought our first house, and this year became a mom!

The past 10 years have been great! Filled with life's most precious milestones...most of life's memorable milestones, in fact! The decade was packed to the rim with God's overflowing blessings and abundant mercies! And although there were A LOT of great times, there were a lot of painful and difficult times as well. A lot of life lessons, a lot of tears, and mistakes, a lot of forgiving and even more asking for forgiveness. Fortunately, time has a way of healing most wounds in my life, leaving me no option but to celebrate all of the good times. the exciting times. the life-can't-get-any-better-than-this times.

Think back on the past 10 years. Laugh. Cry. Remember. Go ahead! You'll be amazed at where you've been and will hopefully be excited about where you are going. Happy New Year!!
