A Fond FarewellJanuary 2, 2008
You were good to me – my thirties. In my twenties I watched the show Thirtysomething and imagined what my life might be at thirty – something. At thirty I had 5 years of marriage under my belt. You brought me ten more fabulous years of marriage, two wonderful children – a new home state, countless new friends, new challenges and new opportunities. I grew as a woman, wife, mother, sister, friend. And now, as I bid thee farewell, I can only pray that God will give me as much grace and mercy in my forties as he has in the past. I pray for my marriage, my children, my health, my friendships, my faith – that all will grow healthy and strong.
Thank you Lord for new beginnings.
