Hello “30″Posted by Shannon Stewart on June 8, 2014 | 1 Comment
I finally said good-bye to my 20′s on Friday! I was not really looking forward to it earlier this year, but the Lord reminded me that with Him, the best is always YET to come! Getting older is just part of life, so I embrace being “30″ with excitement and anticipation. It will definitely feel different saying it for a bit, but I keep hearing that “30′s” are the new “20′s.” So, I say….bring it on!
I had such an awesome birthday weekend. My sister and brother-in-law had signs up, balloons, created a scavenger hunt for me, and got me all kinds of goodies. I felt so touched by what they did. They took their TIME out to make that hunt for me, create the clues/print them, etc, and that really made me feel so special. I don’t know why I got all teary eyed, but I did.
My husband and I celebrated on Saturday because we both had to work on Friday so we just thought it would be better. My man did not disappoint either! He had the day planned with all sorts of things, even an hour-long massage, which I thoroughly enjoyed! I stay pretty active, kind of like my mama, so it was nice to relax and get those knots out! He got me a few things which I love, but one of my favorite things he did was watch a romantic movie with me. He remembered that I had said I wanted to see it and he got it and watched the whole thing! ha! Normally, when we rent movies he will play on his phone at some point, but he watched it like it was his pick. He served me all day, opened the car doors, and just made me feel like a million bucks! Oh, yeah…and how could I forget. I stated that I would just love a home-made card, and sure enough, I got one! It was adorable to say the least.
I also got a phone call from my friend in Hawaii, lots of texts and messages. Sometimes we get so busy we forget that just a simple text, or email can brighten someone’s day. I may not be rich, but I felt so rich this weekend. I was rich in love.
I look forward to this year, and can’t wait to see what the Lord has planned for me. I have a feeling it is going to be exciting.
Stay true to you!>
