Forty.

So yes, today is the day. I am so spoilt. Coffee in bed. Calls. Emails. Facebook messages. Love it all. THANK you! We did not go to San Francisco after all. On wednesday Kirstin broke her ankle and tore the ligaments. Ouch. So we cooked, drank some wine, visited with friends, watched movies and read. It was great. IS great.

here's my last 10 lessons...

1-10
11-20
21-30

31/40: Love produces miracles. It absolutely does.
32/40: God always got my back. Always. Hab 3:19
33/40: A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still. In the same breath a very important life lesson: you can not make someone love you.
34/40: Forgive. Forgive. Forgive. 70X70.
35/40: Know how much you are forgiven. And build your life around and upon it.
36/40: Jack Johnson's banana pancakes song is just it.
37/40: Buy yourself some sexy lingerie. teeheee.
38/40: If i could have a wedding song i will choose Fly me to the moon by Joshua Radin.
39/40: learn to love doing laundry. (I actually do)
40/40: Live your life by grace. There is just no other way. Matt 11:28 says... Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.

My give aways end this week Tuesday. I am going to make myself pretty now.
love and a kiss

Happy Birthday! Sorry the trip didn't work out - I had a little girl with a broken leg this year and it is no fun! So hugs to your daughter!
I hope your year is fabulous and I've loved your life lessons - they're all great!

Too bad you didn't get your trip, though it sounds like you had a great time anyway.
I hope Kirstin is doing okay.
