Day 18: It’s a wonderful life.


Today, I can’t even write you a beautiful article, friends, because I am just too full of words.

No amount of words could express the gratitude I’m feeling today…so I’ll just list it all out to you in a random, eclectic, nonsensical, informal fashion.

-Last night, my fiancé and I sang songs together for over an hour…just to pass the time. I ended my weekend listening and harmonizing to his beautiful voice.

-A week ago, my fiancé got me an all spice cappuccino. This is not a deep, meaningful sentence, but it was the best cappuccino I’ve ever had, and for that, I am thankful.

-My fiancé and I had pecan pie and yummy drinks before our pre marital group this week…such a fun memory.

-This morning, I woke up at 5:30 AM to a warm, cuddly dog who loves me each day unconditionally, even though I leave her early in the morning to go to work.

-Now, I sit on set, where I’m about to play a waitress on a TV show…not a big deal or starring role, but it hit me: at 22 years old, I am doing what I love with my life. Every bit of it.

When I was little, I dreamed of what my life would be. The funny thing is, though, my life is better than I dreamed.

God has changed me, and given me such grace that while I don’t deserve it, He blesses me consistently.

I have a family who love me and make my life beautiful.

This past year, I have had girl friends who are so incredible and actually love me and do life with me.

I’m getting married to the man of my dreams…no-better than the man of my dreams. I couldn’t have imagined I’d get this lucky.

My entire income, while it may not be extravagant, is made up of writing and acting jobs-me doing what I’m passionate about. I wake up each morning excited to cease the day and soak up each minute. Rich? No-not financially…but I am taken care of…I eat, sleep, and live safely in a comfortable environment. I am rich in spirit.

I could go on forever, friends, but the point is…it’s a wonderful life.

  1. I beg to differ with you. Lucky? No you are BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE!!!! I can only imagine how excited you must be about your upcoming wedding. God is sooooooooooooo good. All the time, He is good. For some reason Proverbs 3:6 comes to mind: “In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.” Amen
