Today I am 30 and proud of it! (I also think the cake above looks fantastic.) To me today is just another birthday. I mean I don’t think that turning 30 is anything special. I DO like to celebrate my birthday because God protected me in my mother’s womb so that I could be here today but that is another story for a different day. I am excited to eat cake and ice cream today and am unsure of what sort of surprises that my family will have in store for me. I am sure that there will be good food to go around as well.
As I reflect on my last year in my 20’s I would say that it wasn’t all that great. I lost my grandmother, my husband lost his job, and more stress was added to life. However I have TONS to be thankful for. I have THE BEST family in the whole world, every. last. one. of. you. I count all of you as blessing, especially Christopher, Ephriam, and Kendra who are in the trenches with me everyday. I also have been able to starting nursing school and fulfill a life long dream. Next big dream to fulfill is a missions trip. I am on my way to a healthier me by eating right and exercising. Each day is a new beginning.
This year I want to be a happy year. I am longing for good things to come. Only time will tell.
So here we go to face the day in a whole new decade of my life!
