Happy Friday and Happy Birthday to me! I am celebrating turning 26 today. Honestly, I am a bit sad to leave 25 behind. It was such a big year for me (& for Will & I). We welcomed a beautiful baby boy in to our family that made me a Mom. Just like I cherish all the other big birthday years in my life (graduation, marriage, pregnancy) I will always treasure the year I became a Mom.

It's truly hard to put in to words how my life has changed, for the better. Grayson has made me strive to be a better person, a better wife to Will, and has completely changed my relationship with Jesus. Of course, not all of our days are blue skies and sunshine. Some days are hard and challenging. Some days I sit down and pray, "Lord, give me grace and patience. Help to make tomorrow better." But, there is a lesson in each day, even the rough ones. Grayson has made me realize that each day is truly a gift and I try to wake up with that motto in my head for the day. It keeps me from letting the little stuff become big stuff.

So, yes, I am a little sad to see this year go, but man, can you imagine what 26 will bring me? What it will bring our family? Only God can show us the way. So thankful to have another year with my handsome boys!
