So much has happened since February 25th—thankfully life is not stagnant & I have been able to move forward each day with new experiences & chances for growth. To spend time trying to "catch up" at this point, would only prevent me from spending time writing about the things I want to share from today & the changes that still take place every moment of life...
But to simply skip out on sharing some of the events that took place would leave a gap in all the future stories I'd like to tell—& so, although I'd like to spend hours writing about each event individually, I hope you will be ok with me summing them all up in a few short sentences—knowing that this will at least provide a little more insight into where I've been these past 10 months...
As many of you know, my mom is a math teacher—& although I've never really been great at math, trying to "sum" up everything is like trying to solve a crazy math problem—so, if I really could "add" up all of the big changes that have taken place over the past 10 months, the "sum" would equal 31 — which coincidentally is also the birthday I celebrated in June...
Here are the numbers:
I packed up & moved 4 times
(From Arizona to California—to Utah & back to California again)
Worked at 4 different hospitals
Taught Group X classes at 7 different gyms
Discovered that having 1 puppy was more work than I ever thought she would be
(Meet Hana—my adorable boxer puppy)
Delivered 1 baby girl (in the parking lot of a hospital at 2am—mom, baby & yes, even dad are all doing great)
Welcomed 1 new nephew (making a grand total of 21 nieces and nephews—with 1 more on the way—so fun!)
(This is my dad holding Owen—my "baby" brother's newest baby)
Attended 1 funeral (you can go to http://www.dbkunz.blogspot.com to learn more about this precious little boy and his amazing family)
Ran for the 2nd time in the Wasatch back 178 mile relay
(Our 1/2 of the "Wasatch Women" at mile 100—16 hours into the race)
Had many weekend "trips" taking me through 7 different airports
Replaced 2 doors on my car (after it was hit 2 different times by 2 different people)
Fell in love with 1 very amazing man
(Ladies & Gentlemen...Mr Zach Pond)
...Each of these events hold more memories than can ever be written, & some hold the memories that are still yet to come—but as I look back to at where I was in February, I can't help but see how clearly the Lord has been preparing me for where I am today. & although I'm not sure where tomorrow will lead me, I do know that for today, I am in the place I need & want to be…
