Scattered Thoughts

I am feeling so grateful.  I just might burst.

As I drove home from work today, the anthems of my life blared through my car stereo.  It took me back to high school, Idaho, Disney, former lovers, and other memories between.  It shocked me, to think of what I have accomplished and the places I have been.  It almost seems like those memories didn't belong to me, that I didn't really live through those different phases of my life.  Those "Erins" seem so different than the Erin that I am today.  Yet, at the same time, many things haven't changed.

As I look back at these memories, I see that the hand of God guided me to and through those different experiences. I would not be who I am today without Him.  I stand in awe of what He has done for me, and where He has led me. I am so deliriously happy for where I am today.  I love my life.  I love my Mr. Ryan Novak.  I love being in Florida.  I love so many more amazing aspects of my life.  It is truly amazing.  I wouldn't change it for anything.

I am glad to have accomplished what I accomplished. I'm grateful for the people I have met along my journey, and continue to meet.  I am beyond grateful for the Lord's help and strength in my life to bring me to where I am today.  I feel like one blessed girl.

Does this post even make sense? I can barely find the words for how I feel! For now, this will have to do.

  1. Erin! You are still as you as ever. The Erin that I know is constantly striving to improve herself, her situation in life, and the people she surrounds herself with. You are such an incredible example of following God no matter where he leads you. Thanks for being so great! Thanks for sharing who you are with me, and with the world!
