Today I turned 28 years old, and I’m feeling so many emotions. The one emotion that best describes all of them put together is: joy. I’m so happy and thankful the Lord has blessed me with another year. I know and read too many stories about people younger than me not seeing this age, so I know to always be thankful for every day God blesses me to see.
I didn’t do anything crazy this year for my birthday. I had a very relaxing day at home with my little family. My husband was off today, and he took care of everything around the house from, Jordyn to cleaning, cooking, etc. He’s the best. Even better, after he makes us a delicious dinner this evening, he will run a nice warm bath for me to read, and relax. I couldn’t ask for more if I tried. We’ll also have a later birthday celebration when we go home next month since we’ll have more options around us. I have basketball practice with my Special Olympics team this evening which I’m excited about. It’s always fun to get to see some of your favorite people on your special day.
More than anything, I want to take the time to let every single one of you know how appreciative, grateful, and thankful I am for all of your beautiful birthday wishes. I feel there is never anything I could say to explain exactly how joyful you all make my heart, taking time out of your busy day, to wish me a happy birthday. I don’t take the wishes for granted, and please know I am so blessed to be surrounded by so many caring, and loving people. Tonight, have a delicious drink of some sort, and say cheers with me!
Happy and blessed Tuesday everybody. Again, thank you!
