I still get so fired up on my birthday! I get excited when it is August 1st, because t's my birthday month!
I got excited when it was Aug 13th at work and all my paperwork required me to put that on my daily progress notes. That just seemed so close to my actual birthday, and it meant it was the actual week of my birthday!
So to celebrate my own birth, I am posting a few pictures of my biggest and best gifts!
I am one big ol blessed girl. I have a great and helpful husband. I have two awesome little girls who couldn't be more different and who feed my soul in totally different ways!
And I am so thankful to God for all the rich blessings in my life. I love my work. I have great friends and family. And I am not trying to pull one of those ridiculous FB posts where life is so great and wonderful and there is nothing bad ever. I am only taking this opportunity to recognize that despite some craziness this year, I am most definitely choosing to focus on the joy in my life than the chaos.
But a little chaos DOES make life interesting. Thank you, LORD, for all your grace in my life.
I read somewhere that the average age of an American these days is 84. I was 42 last year which was half way. Soooo, I suppose that means I am on the downhill slide of life. That's pretty weird! Oh well, I'll enjoy the ride!
