Surprise

Surprise me...

Yesterday I got one of the most amazing and thoughful surprises from a pretty incredible man that I just so happen to love.

However I took a vow of social media silence on the subject just in case other people might view the gift as corny... dare I say un-manly?

So I can't tell you what it was... but trust me it was AMAZING and probably one of the sweetest gifts I have ever received. Sorry ladies, he is all mine ;)

I told you that to tell you that I absolutely love surprises. Big surprises, little surprises, corny surprises (those are my favorite).

I don't just love getting surprises, I love to give surprises.

Just ask Jacob, I probably text him at least once a week and tell him I have a surprise for him... and its usually something small like my leftover chicken from work (he is pretty easy to please).

I love Christmas and birthdays... I don't think I will ever hate getting older, just cause it means i get to have another birthday!

I don't understand why anyone wouldn't love to be surprised.

But I guess there are those surprises, those unexpected events, those things that catch you off guard. The kind of surprise that takes you off the course you originally intended.

Things change, people make mistakes, stuff doesn't work out... surprise...

Life may throw you a metaphorical curve ball, but we all have a choice.

You can choose to give up or you can choose to push forward.

Expect the best, plan for the worst, and take what God chooses to send.

Life is full of surprises, the good and the bad.

But I choose to believe that even when things don't turn out how I want, even when I feel as if I've messed up beyond repair, even when life just plain sucks... That God is good, and that are much bigger, better, and even more amazing surprises in my future.

Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord..."


What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
