Dear Ms. 25

Hey girlfriend!!!

Wow. Who knew this year would go by so quickly? It seems like just yesterday that it was November 9, 2012. I have to say…you and I 25…we had one HECK of a ride.

You know, before you and I met, I spent the last few moments of 24 with God…praying and telling Him all of my heart’s desires. I remember asking Him to bless me beyond my wildest dreams, to clearly reveal to me my passion and anchor people in my life who would sharpen me while removing those who were making me dull. MAN, did He answer THAT prayer!!

He blessed me with family and friends who pour into me, a guy who speaks life into me and a business that I NEVER would have imagined owning. I mean…REALLY?! ME? A business owner?? Never in my biggest thoughts, did I think this would be happening to me. To be honest, I still can’t believe I’m doing this…but then I realize…it’s not me doing anything. THIS. IS. ALL. GOD. I guess I have you to thank for that.

You Ms. 25, taught me the importance of submitting to His will and you blossomed the blessings He rewarded me with as a result of me moving in obedience.

Now don’t get me wrong, this year wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies…there were tears, sadness and doubt. But as I embark on this 26th year of life, I look back on you with pride because through the tears and moments of doubt, I stepped out on faith and trusted more than ever before.

As I prepare to bid you adieu, I want to simply say thank you. Because of you, I see so clearly. You have brought me peace…a joy that just radiates from within…confidence in who I am. Our ride has come to an end and while I don’t know what 26 holds in store for me, whatever it has up its sleeve…because of you, I’m ready.

So with that, I raise my glass to you Ms. 25. Cheers to all of our fun memories and the lessons we’ve learned. You taught me more than you know and have grown me so much as a woman.

Goodbye 25. Hello Ms. 26. My name is Sachel Samone. It’s nice to meet you.
