Can you believe that it has been almost a whole year since I last wrote?! That seems hard to imagine- but really, life flies by so quickly! Things have changed so fast in the past year, probably more than I can remember. Every year of our lives I feel grows complicated in more ways and simpler in other ways. One one hand, things grow more complex as life happens. Life in general just gets...messy really. We meet new people, try new things, gain new scars, and also cry new tears. This just makes me feel more like an onion- every year adds several more layers to me (some of them not so pretty!). On the other side of the coin, life grows more simple in other ways. Most of that is aging and maturing honestly. We never stop aging- we all know this. But we also never stop maturing (if you let yourself). All those new scars and complications produce incredible messiness and also incredible clarity. I have grown in the last year. Some things that scared me, suddenly seem as if they are only shadows in my mind. Opportunities that I was dreading have been experienced and I have come through this all with a little bit more seasoning. I know each year with growing clarity where my priorities lie. Jesus. Family. Health. Love. All of these are shaping me every year, chipping away to form me into who I am. So, in lieu of this, I am glad to say it has been a full year and to wish you many happy reading endeavors.
