Grateful for Always

It still hasn't dawned on me that I'm no longer in my early or mid-twenties. I have just turned 27 a couple of days ago and it will probably take some time before I get the hang of being 27.

I'm truly grateful for so many things in my life (cue Seinabo Sey's Younger in acoustic version). This path I have taken may be the road less traveled- it gets too difficult at times that I want to give up, but I draw strength and motivation from my loving family, my support group here in Taiwan, and my best friends. There are nights when I'm afraid and cry myself to sleep, but then I try to remind myself that for the past 6 years, God has never left me alone, and He will never leave me. He takes away this part of my heart that is sad, consoles it and fills it with joy again. He has given me so much more than I deserve.

Thank You, God, for all 27 years and for Your love which is being manifested through all the people you've put in my life.
