Dear October 2018,
My heart stretches out to you. Not only because you were full of fun opportunities, but you were full of lovely people. I always feel like the best of memories are made in these next couple of months filled with holidays. I can definitely acknowledge that, yes, October, you were crammed with amazing memories for me to look back on.
From pizza with my besties, to carving pumpkins, to photoshoots for Rosepetalsandfaith, to grabbing pumpkin macchiatos with my sisters--the first couple weeks were simply great. If anything, you taught me to surround myself with Godly people. It makes a difference. Not only can the laughter be genuine, but so can the love.
So we head into the middle of October--going sightseeing with my family hoping to see colored leaves when instead we see the first snowfall...YES! Watching Charlie Brown with the family. Life is so special in these little moments, when everything seems imperfectly perfect. When it's not hard to smile and grab some cookies without feeling guilty. It's good.
I also got to do an exciting photoshoot with the most adorable family. I can't thank God enough for the opportunities He's given me. Then I had some fun in the kitchen as my bestie came over. We had Halloween goodies, handed out candy, and I watched Hocus Pocus for the first time. Yes...I'd never watched it until this year, crazy, amiright? We painted pumpkins and had fun even if the end results weren't the greatest lol! I can hear Adi and Charity now, "Speak for yourself, Katlyn." LOL!
Oh! I attended a youth dinner at my Grandfather and Grandmother's church. I enjoyed every minute of fellowship with sweet people. Nearing the end of the month, my family also celebrated my beautiful Momma's birthday with cake and ice cream. These are the fun times I enjoy so much. While it may seem chaotic to have so much on the calendar, I've found me telling myself to enjoy the moment. Live right now, because the future is never certain. And I can't tell you the joy...the pure joy of my life being right in the palm of God's hand. It's bliss. I couldn't imagine being anywhere else.
October, I think you made me more content. I don't need loads of things piled to the ceiling to be happy. I don't need more clothes just like her. It's okay to be simply the person God created me to be. He says I am enough. God just wants me. He wants my heart. You taught me that the other things, they don't matter, they're just fun little extras to have while we're here on this earth. You taught me that relationships...those are really what matter. And I endlessly thank you for that.
Looking forward to what God has in store for me in November.
I'll Keep Smiling,
