I Am Happy
I've answered that question in just about every way imaginable over the years. If my dad were to ask me today "are you a happy girl" I would have to say "absolutely."
Not only am I happy, but I'm at peace. I am coping with CF in a way that I couldn't before.
I have a purpose in life: to love God and tell people about Him and share encouragement with them in ways that I have been uniquely suited.
I have laughter--today when my mom broke a whole box of Christmas lights all in one fell swoop, we laughed like crazy because every single bulb had broken; we realized this when she shook the box and it sounded like Frosted Flakes were the contents.
I have joy. My husband never stops impressing me with the ways he loves me. He is my greatest earthly happiness.
I have anticipation. Very soon my little namesake, Ava Lauren will see the world for the first time. I get to celebrate the birth of her and her twin sister, Julia Ann, who are already blessings in their lives of their parents.
So yes, I'm a happy girl. Happier than I've been in a long time.
