From my view…

Once upon a time there was a little girl.  She dreamed of working in a tall office building made up of lots of windows with a view of the city.  She dreamed of wearing a “power suit” and carrying a briefcase.  She dreamed of feeling like she was important.  She dreamed of the success that all these things came with.

That little girl grew into a woman who achieved all of that.

Slowly that girl changed.  She changed more than she ever wanted to admit and so she refused to admit it. 

Then one day she EMBRACED what God had given her. 

She saw the gifts in her life. 

She REALIZED what she was on this earth to do. 

It turns out it wasn't what SHE had planned and that was FINALLY ok with her. 

Funny how HE often has OTHER plans for the lives we dream of.

Funny how THOSE plans turn out BETTER than ANY we made for ourselves.

I can’t think of a better view on a Tuesday than mine from the back of pushing our truck of a stroller!!!
Check out the baby bjorn...yep that's Julia's hair!!  Funny huh?

Thank you God for YOUR better plan.
