Is this real life + Grateful Anyways

I don't really want to talk about the fact that life is passing me by at warped speed. It's the middle of August, about 2 months from mine and Hunter's wedding anniversary, and I'm pretty sure it feels like 2015 just started yesterday. Like, whaaaaaa?
 
Don't get me wrong - I love that God has filled my life with so much beauty, and wonder, and love that I'm just having so much fun and not realizing how quickly time is passing. He has been so good to me. On the flip side, the speediness of this life is sad because those are the days that are gone and now all that's left are the memories made. Beautiful memories, but alas, only memories.
 
Hello sappy Monday, right? Cheer up buttercup! This weekend was spent with people - friends, family, youth students. It was so so wonderful doing life with those people. Chatting about where we are today and thanking God for His plans; laughing as we help a friend move and trying to shove her furniture through doorways; watching one of our youth students get baptized; seeing God's ministry grow like none other.
 
I'm so grateful for the people that He has placed in my life. Whether it's my family, dearest friends, or the lively lady in the Chick-fil-A drive through window - know that I thank God daily for your life and your purpose. This weekend, Hunter and I will be traveling a few hours to spend time with both of our sisters at Disney World to celebrate their upcoming 17th birthdays. I want to soak in all the time that we spend together laughing at each other, take as many selfies or usies because duh, more than one person is an "usies" ha! I want my face to be sore from my crooked smile being pasted on my face the entire time. I want to live life to the fullest.
