Sentimental Blog of the Week

I am obsessed with The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. She’s a cooking, photo-taking, fun-loving, homeschooling, wife of a rancher, and mother of four who has an amazing cooking blog, and if you haven’t experienced her greatness then you should go to She has saved me from many a night when I didn’t know what I would cook. She also has give-aways, which I love but never, ever win because over 30,000 people enter the things. Today she is having yet another give-away of three Le Creuset 9-Quart Round Dutch Ovens, which I really want. To enter you have to tell if you are where you thought you’d be in your life. Desiring a Le Creuset 9-Quart Round Dutch Oven, I entered. And that got me to thinking…

Am I where I thought I’d be when I was 18 or 22 or even 24? Not at all.

I don’t know if I can even remember what I wanted my life to be when I was younger. I do remember wanting to be married when I graduated from college and having all my kids by 30 or so. Well, neither of those happened, and I’m glad. My life is so much more than I could have ever dreamed it could be. Looking back at how God has guided me on this path called life I am so thankful for the things that didn’t work out or happen as I wanted them to. My life is great, perfect for me, and filled with trust and peace in my God, knowing that He will guide me in every step.
