When we explain the year we’ve had to others,
it’s typical to get the response,
“Wow, what a roller coaster you’ve been on!”
This year has not been a roller coaster.
We’ve been hanging out in a freaking Amusement Park riding every roller coaster in site!
Screaming for excitement, hands in the air, throwing-up, then moving on to the next ride to do it all over again.
This morning I ACTUALLY put a pre-packed suitcase in my car JUST IN CASE plans change again and I got on the flight I booked a couple weeks ago. Yes, I’m still dangerously and hopelessly hopeful.
Tuesday, July 7: I’m 24 for the last day. Logan is demoted to AAA to make room for a player coming back from an 80-game PED (Performance Enhancing Drugs) suspension. It wasn’t UNexpected, but it’s never fun to be demoted after doing your job well. Like, really well.
And even though your coaches recognize you’re doing well, and the media knows you’re doing well, and the fans are mad you’re demoted because you’re doing well…
Well, well, well…

Yet again, another reminder of how temporary life and its’ successes are. Not to be morbid in any way, but a constant reminder that we should live life fully!! No ragrets. Not even one letter.
Our suffering is light and temporary and is producing for us an eternal glory that is greater than anything we can imagine. 2 Corinthians 4:17
Needless to say, I woke up July 8th, my 25th birthday, feeling grateful
beyond belief and my heart was exploding with love for the people (and dog) God has placed in my life. We have so much to be thankful for and these crazy roller coaster rides can be so much fun!
I am truly undeserving of the good things that have happened in my 25 years of life.
So let's hop back in line and go on that roller coaster again and again!
I'm apparently having the time of my life!
And that's all I have to say about that.
