I think I can say without a second thought that none of those were the best.
365 days ago I turned 30. I was living a whirlwind of having 2 preemie newborns. I think this day mostly consisted of our sanity providing 3 hour baby feeding schedule, not the glamorous 30th birthday one may dream about, but one that showed the fruition of so many other dreams.
When this year began I thought it was going to be one of survival more than anything, but as I have journeyed through I think I can say without a doubt this has been the BEST year so far.
I have gotten to know and love two of the most amazing people that will ever enter into my life. Being a mommy is something I dreamed about for so long and was a dream some days I was not sure would come true...at least as I planned. (Well actually it didn't happen as I planned but as God did and with anything His plan was so much greater.)
Aaron finished grad school, passed the CPA exam and now is working for a great firm.
I went back to work after 13 weeks home with the twins. This I thought would be one of the hardest things I ever would do. My heart has always longed to be at home with my babies, but for various reasons does not seem the be the right plan for our family right now. I feel God really laid the path to provide amazing childcare for Jackson & Riggs along with a flexible work environment for me to be a working mom. So far this arrangement has worked great for our family.
I will turn 30 weighing 20 pounds less than when I became pregnant-a weight that I have not seen since at least my junior year in college. One year ago I was hoping I would be able to lose the 60 pounds of baby weight I gained through my pregnancy. I never dreamed it would be 80 pounds lighter.
I have started running,
I feel this year I have really tired to draw closer to God in the good times and bad. Wanting to know Him more and seek out His will in my life
And most recently I feel God has placed a new calling on my heart, a purpose. This is very recent so I am still trying to seek out His desire for me in this, but I feel so passionate for a cause like I never have before.
While 30 has been the best days of my life so far, I am hopeful the best is yet to come.
So as the clock strikes 3:17 AM on May 5th, 2012 I hope I am starting an even better year yet!
