Tomorrow is My Birthday

I am so blessed.  I've already been out to dinner with my family, lucky me (SQUEE!). In the morning I get to go to a friends house for breakfast.  She offered to cook for me to celebrate my special day.  We try to get together at least once a year (on her birthday and have breakfast), but this year she's catching me on mine, and I feel SUPER SPECIAL!

To me cooking is a labor of love and when someone offers to make a meal for you, it means they really care.  It has inspired me to do the same for someone else, in essence to "Pay it Forward".  Not my family, I cook for them all the time, but a friend that I don't get to spend as much time with as I'd like.  I hope they experience the same feeling of love as I do.

My mom bought me a dress to wear to the wedding I'm attending this weekend and that made me feel AWESOME!

And Wednesday I get to go see SADE...say what!!! 

Every which way I turn, I am blessed.  My life is this great journey and I am so happy to have made it these 33 years to experience all I have; the ups and downs.  They have made me who I am, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. 

I am truly grateful for all the people in my life.  You've all helped me grow in some way or other, and I truly appreciate it.  I trust your day will be as blessed as mine is. 

Be Blessed.
