It is my birthday! No flowers because I live in the Arctic. No birthday cake because there’s no bakery here. So, I’m trying something different tonight. I’m getting a little bit of inspiration to just write.
I love my husband, and I have no earthly idea what I would do without him, but sometimes he doesn’t know everything about me; it’s really hard because we come from different cultures, and my feeling is that I can tell him everything, but sometimes he doesn’t understand what I mean. Because my appalling English that I’ve been misunderstood too many times, and I’ve learned to just keep it all in.
I’ve learned a lot this last year, who I am, who I want to be, what I want out of life, what my deepest fears are, what makes me so happy, and who I am in Christ. There are still a ton of things that I have yet to learn, and for me, life is constantly showing me that I don’t know everything. I’m still learning. I’m still learning how to be a better person. And how to be a better wife, and how to be a better daughter. None of us are perfect, and we’re trying, constantly trying and struggling to make sense out of this crazy world. We’re expected to know exactly who we are and who we want to be, and what we want out of life. We’re expected to know whether we want that owner’s house with the green garden or how many kids we want (but too bad I am too old).
Last, but not least to my wonderful husband, thank you so much for supporting me and loving me everyday. I’m so blessed to have such an amazing partner who really cares about me. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family that has molded me into the person that I am, and I love you so much. You have been my light in times of darkness.
