In the park!

Ok! Let me tell you!! As if you couldn't already have guessed!! I love New York!! It isn't some place I think I'd like to live but give the chance to go on vacation anywhere, I think this is where is choose.

This morning i put on my favorite sweatshirt, my favorite shoes not worrying about whether I'd look like a New Yorker... Lets face it! I look like a detroiter mom because, well, that's what I am.
I feel rejuvenated and full of life and can't wait to hit the ground running when I get home!! I feel like one of those wind up toys that has just been wound up :)

I'm in the park now thinking over a lot of things, praying, thinking about where I've been, what God has rescued me from, and swimming in His grace. Knowing that I'm not perfect but knowing I can't change my past but can move forward! I'm not who I once was!!
Thankful for my friend Sara who taught me to be purpose driven not emotionally driven! Thanks dear friend! I'm forever thankful for that much needed advice!
I'm thankful for a lot of things as I sit on a rock in Central Park zoo (did you know you can walk through even when it's not open?)

I've got some more ground to cover while I'm here!

Sending love from Central Park zoo in New York City!!
