I got a comment on facebook the other day that took me back over a decade ago. Good times. I started remembering my good times and I love thinking back on those days. Just like one day 10 years from now, I will look back at now. I think that's why I cherish photos, I ask for a lot of photos because I want to keep those memories alive. I have had some amazing experiences. Most of them are not like others, and thats okay. I have spent years comparing myself to others and I have wasted so much time. God has given me some really cool personal moments, some things I just can not share. God is so personal! I don't want to live in the past, I think thats dangerous. I don't want to miss THIS MOMENT. I love thinking about each moment and what I can make of it.
If you have read my blog for a bit, or know me in the real world, you know that I am odd. Odd in a special way. I just seem to see things different than a lot of people. I am very silly but I can be very serious and emotional at times. Seriously, I almost cried at Home Depot tonight when I saw the Christmas lights. Why? My parents were with me and it took me back to years ago, when Christmas was just so simple and yet so wonderful. I will cherish those memories forever. If my dad ever doubts his parenting skills, I hope he reads this and knows what an awesome life I have now due to how he raised us.
Anyway,back to memories. Right now we are waiting for our first child from China. This wait is much longer than we anticipated. But this wait as been awesome and has included some of the most special moments of my life. My heart has grown and I can understand the phrase "Open the Eyes of my Heart Lord". I know I am in the middle of memories. I know its okay to cry every once in a while but dang its been a happy tear year!
