This coming weekend is Jaco and my 40th birthday. His is Saturday and mine is Sunday and we agreed to spend it somewhere memorable. So he, me and the girls are going to San Francisco for the weekend. This post by Tara Whitney really inspired me. for Jaku's birthday Saturday i made a reservations here. We cannot wait. I am planning to make it a photo weekend and will tell you all about it.
Here's a few things i have learned in my 40 years:
1/40: Loving God has been the best-est thing i ever decided to do: (psalm 27:4) I'm asking God for one thing, only one thing: To live with him in his house my whole life long. I'll contemplate his beauty; I'll study at his feet.
2/40: It's better to love and get hurt than to never love at all.
3/40: Fresh Flowers always always cheers me up.
4/40: My kids' have been the great joy of my life... their names are the only thing i would ever consider tattoo-ing on me. tee-hee.
5/40: Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.
6/40: I homeschool my girls and I love what Leo said: We believe our kids should learn how to teach themselves, as many of us learned to do as adults. We don’t believe anyone can create a curriculum of knowledge that will prepare our kids for a future that can’t be predicted, for a workforce that is rapidly changing. Instead, they should learn how to figure things out for themselves, to solve problems, to work on their own without being directed. They’re the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
7/40: Never say never. Seriously. I have said "never" so many times and ended up doing exactly what i called "never" on.
8/40: Don't judge people... you never know what battles they are fighting.
9/40: Relax. Smile. Pray. Worry is a prayer for chaos.
10/40: Drink coffee. amen.
to be continued tomorrow...
love and a kiss
