The Circle is a monthly link-up that was born with dreams of creating a place for bloggers to get to know one another just a little bit better and to make new friends. Hosted by Kiki at ‘In It’s Time‘ on the third Wednesday of each month. This monthly link-up is a place for bloggers to share and write on a fun, light-hearted (or possibly heavy-hearted) topics.
This month’s Post prompt from Kiki is “Letters to Our Future Selves, this is a fun concept, as I have already written a letter to my past self.
Dear 40 year old Emma,
I do hope that all is well, and that your health is good. What is it like being a teen mom? I am sure you miss the kids being little, but right now, I am in maintenance mode waiting for them to be a little more self sufficient.
Do we still homeschool the kids? (Are there anymore kids?!?!) Is there anything you wish we had done more now? I know that 10 years ago from now I was a completely different person, so I am curious what time has introduced us to between me and you. Did we ever open a restaurant or Food Truck?
What is the world like? Does Hate still prevail, or has Christian Love finally conquered? I do hope that the world has healed from the evil that runs rampant in these current times.
Do you and Ry have any new secret jokes and/or regular activities? It’s a long time, so I am sure what is relevant to me is old news to you.
Where do we live now? Being that Ry is still active duty, we live in Alaska; but right now our plans are to settle in Colorado Springs, did that pan out? I am still hoping to sell Ry on the idea of goats, chickens and such; but really doubt he will ever be on board.
Has our walk of Faith gotten stronger? Right now I feel as though I am stumbling and falling frequently. My thoughts are dark and my actions are not as loving as I’d like.
Just remember, age is only a number. You are only as old as you choose to be, and stay young at heart.
