I'm 53 and Content With Me
Today is my 53rd birthday and I'm finding myself at a place where I'm happy and content with the life the Lord has given me.
It's a good life. I have a loving, Godly husband. I have three children who love the Lord and are kind and compassionate to others. I enjoy caring for my family and working alongside Dan in ministry. And it's enough.
I no longer have the constant struggle that what I do isn't important or successful. I am content.
This birthday finds me visiting my mother, stepfather and grandmother. We've had a wonderful time together and I'll be sad to leave tomorrow. My grandmother has diabetes, dementia and Alzheimer's so she's definitely different than the last time I saw her. But she looks good. She looks healthy. My mother has done a wonderful job caring for her. I'm so blessed to be able to come back in May and care for her for 7 days so my parents can get a way for a bit.
This morning I have to speak at a woman's group at church and then I'll be coming back to care for parents who came down with the stomach bug last night. Yikes! So it's a different sort of birthday. Not quite what I imagined.
But I'm happy. I'm 53 and content with me!
