I asked my parents a few weeks back
what’s been you favorite season of life ??
they didn’t know it then
but I recorded their answers with my phone
My Precious mother said her favorite season was the late sixties,
her teen years
despite the loss of her precious mother
kids are resilient
she loved the music
“Age of Aquarius”
her brothers were playing music
so she and her sister Suz were where is was happenin’!
“Groovin’ on a Sunday Afternoon..”
daddy said his favorite year was the bicentennial
they were living in Myrtle Beach
singing at the Bowery
living “high on the hog”
I made note of a quote that he shared during our chat
he said, “get ready for it girls..”
“forty is the old age of youth..
Fifty is the youth of old age…”
and though forty is just around the corner
as a thirty something mother of two
the season I’m in
is by far my
my teen years were shady
lots of guilt
my early twenties were fun
life was exciting
spoiled ourselves & each other
I began to see how vain I was
our season of infertility and loss
well, I actually got depressed on my thirtieth birthday
invited a handful of my closest friends over
to sit on our front porch and listen to me whine a while…
the next day
I was over it
and have been savoring
what I call
my wisest years yet.
AND this is where we
“wisest years yet”…bahahahahah
let’s review for those of you who may be new to our neck of the woods:
in my 35th year
I left my career
came home, began homeschooling our children, started a new business, bought another and……..
it’s still another month until my birthday
so who knows what I’ll get into between now and then!
nah, all kidding aside
wise or foolish?
scared or brave?
I wouldn’t have it any other way
a husband to love
children to cherish
Living each day
faithfully at the feet of my Savior
am I perfect?
not this side of eternity
no not one…
living full of His grace each day
THANKFUL for His blessings in our life
Praying to be found faithful
Believing that our best days will only get better
now it’s YOU TURN!…what’s been your favorite season of life thus far??
