When first looking back on the month I really had no idea what had even happened. The month of March has been one of the longest months, and almost felt never ending at times. I noticed a shift in how I spent my time from the previous months. I spent a large amount of time doing things that weren’t necessarily the top of my list when it comes to my free time. Every moment seemed to be extremely planned out for me. So looking back at my month one thing I can say is that I am extremely blessed and have cherished the small moments. It’s the little moments in your day or week when you can just sit there and enjoy the quiet. I remember laying on the driveway with my oldest nephew feeling the sun on my face while eating orange slices. It was so simple, yet probably one of my most cherished moments of the month with him. It was those moments I was able to just sit and play card games with my boyfriend, or go for a walk around his neighborhood while trying to decide which houses were more haunted. With a serious lack of time spent with my friends I was able to spend the time I had with my family and wonderful boyfriend. Which seems ironic looking back at my month because I felt like I hardly saw them at all.
Looking back at where I was this time last year, I remember I was working and constantly surrounded by a self absorbed industry. It’s pretty great to think that my time this month was mostly spent doing things that either helped others or made them feel loved. Even though I felt like I didn’t have much time to do the things I really enjoy doing I still really cherished the month of March. Besides it’s better to serve than be served right? I thank the Lord everyday for the people in my life pushing me closer to Jesus. I am so blessed to have people in my life who are constantly reminding me of how great he is. I spent the last evening of March with some amazing people I am lucky to have in my life. No matter where we are the conversation is always brought back to talking about Gods work in our lives. Sometimes I get caught up in the every day-ness in my life. I feel stressed and overwhelmed… and then all of the sudden I find myself drinking a beer, listening to amazing music, and having wonderful conversation with friends. I then realize we all have those stresses in our lives and we are lucky enough to have each other to lean on.
