This week is being all about celebration! Celebrating my birthday, celebrating our wedding anniversary and celebrating The British Pageant!
Let’s start from the beginning:
Monday! on July 29th I turned 30! the so “unexpected year” for many on their twenties… even myself in the past was so scared of turning to a new decade, but not too long ago I started thinking about how exciting it actually was turning 30 years! Being a wife, a mum, a graduate,…living in a new country! I told Samuel, that it was time already, that I was prepared, that I felt prepared for new goals in life, in our family. So I faced my 30th birthday with a very positive attitude, excited as a little girl, and self-confident as a strong woman 🙂 I felt on that day and the following ones that I had many things to be grateful for…
Tuesday-Wednesday! Our 3rd wedding anniversary!! It’s been three years since we said “I do” for all eternity. We have so many memories already, a beautiful and non-stoppable daughter and so many exciting experiences going on in our lives lately. It is true what they say about marriage, it is, or should be, like falling in love with the same person day after day. This “British adventure” has made us drawn closer to each other, and whether it be for the good or for the bad now we are one another’s support. We turn to each other when we feel down, when we share good moments as well. But that’s what marriage is about! specially if you want it to last for all eternity!
Thursday! The British Pageant! Organized by the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter day Saints, the one that we belong to, it tells the story of the first missionaries in the British Isles, when they arrived to Preston in 1837 sharing the gospel with the people of England. It’s a beautiful story of strength, sacrifice and faith. So whether you are religious or not, it is always uplifting and rewarding to hear about the good example of people like them. As a family, we always try to live our lives in a way that people might see something different in us, hopefully something differently good and not weird!, but when you are able to attend to this type of activities you also have to speak up, and share with who ever wants to listen that we are members of the Church, that we believe in God and Jesus-Christ and that we know how we can be eternal families! and that is something you need to say aloud. 🙂
