Sometimes what you believe you want most in life is not always what you need. Today I received an acceptance letter from CSU-Fullerton for Fall 2011. I remember how happy I was when I received that same letter last year for Fall 2010 and how surreal it felt to me that I’d finally be attending there, until the good news was unexpectedly taken away in late summer of that same year.
For more than a decade I had wanted nothing more than to walk back onto that campus, and now here I am instead attending CSU-Long Beach and feeling so happy and like that is truly where I belong. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would want that. God really did have a different plan for me.
I find that has happened a lot in my life, that the things I thought I wanted the most turned out to be what I didn’t need and a blessing far better than I could have imagined was given to me instead. This especially makes me think of meeting my husband and how God brought our lives together at just the right moment. Words will never be enough to express how thankful I am for that.
Today I am thankful for all the blessings and surprises that God has given me, the unexpected turn of events, and all the awesome things I get to enjoy. Every one of the different surprises has made me more humble, thankful, and appreciative of God and life.
