Y’all, I’m 29!
This last year has been the most difficult one I’ve had so far, but it has had some of the highlights, too. I’m learning about the bittersweetness of life of being present to that instead of trying to reconcile everything or figure it all out.
If you’ve never read “Carry On, Warrior”, you at least need to read this hilarious excerpt when Glennon canceled her birthday. It’s a rough ride when we have to face the realization that we aren’t special little snowflakes who the world revolves around on our birthdays! I totally get that this year! 🙂 So funny.
I have lots of reflecting to do and I’m excited about the things God has been stirring up and what that will bring about in this new year for me.
Until then, let me offer you my completely unsolicited recommendations. Also known as, the things I annoyingly bring up in conversation all the time. Or, Sarah’s top 10 things she can’t live without….
