A Trip to the Zoo (and a Brief Life Update)

Gotta love San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park. I have been visiting this marvelous place since I was a little girl, and over the weekend I went with my family to celebrate my Mother’s Birthday, Easter, and to spend some quality time together before my parents moved away. My brother and I walked around the park nostalgically noticing all the playful details scattered about for kids to play in. A fox den crawl space (how did we ever fit in there?) A giant brass log (and how did we manage to never bang our heads?).

I have fond memories of my childhood, and while that is now a thing of the past, I’m happy to be moving on, and am so excited for my future. For those of you who don’t know, I just moved out on my own and I just landed an amazing job (more on that later). So as of this same weekend, I am 100% supporting myself financially, it is rather liberating in an awesomely terrifying way. I’m ecstatic, really. I also hope the best for the parents, as they continue their retirement journey into Arizona along with all our little critters.

As we move forward, I plan to focus on the new, not the old… (Isaiah 43:18-19). But most importantly in this, I know I am not alone and will never be alone, because a Greater Power is out there watching over me. I owe it all to that which I can’t even fathom. What I do know is to honor those who gave me life, always express love and kindness, and never take anything for granted.
