A different kind of birthday post

One day I woke up and it was the middle of November.

I have no idea how this happened. Trev's 25th birthday was yesterday. He had to work. My first thought was 'someday we will do birthdays right'. This is my first reaction on a lot of things. I just have this feeling that someday when Trevor is out of school we will look back and cherish these memories. So why is it that right now, all I can do is dream and hope for the future. It's not the money I'm looking forward to it's the stability.

My entire childhood I lived in the same town, in the same house, had the same friends, attended the same church and school. My life was predictable. I loved it. I think by nature I'm complacent. Then I married a dreamer. Talk about rocking my stable world. My husband follows his heart, has big ideas, and isn't afraid to try new things.

So I'm along for this wild ride called life. No more 'lazy river' for me. We are on a rollercoaster. A rollercoaster that causes us to trust God and each other more. It causes us to make sacrifices and moves and get new jobs.

While it isn't the married life I dreamed of...I'm glad it's mine and I'm glad he's mine. Happy Birthday Trevor. I love you more today than all our yesterdays combined.

  1. I love this one.

    I'm the same as you - I like stability. Matty Mark is the same also. I also dream of that time where it will all happen. I don't freak out at this point when it isn't all happening the way I expect it to and I remind Matty Mark a couple times here and there that the day will come when life will be the one we dream of together.:)
