A Year Older

Today is my 31st birthday. Another year added to my age. I honestly don't care about the figure as I have something very beautiful to expect this year. And a lot of blessings have come my way the past year so I really can't complain. In fact, there are hundreds of reasons for me to feel grateful that I've lost count already. All I know is that my life is immensely blessed, and in general, I am extremely happy.

The Lord has given me so much abundance in life. As I celebrate another year of blissful happenstance, I cannot help but feel so overwhelmed with the outpour of love coming from all directions. I praise my Maker for giving me so many reasons to be thankful for whenever I wake up in the morning. My life is not the best there is but I am contented with what I have.

I have a husband whose steadfast love keeps me going each day...
I have a loving family who is always there for me...
I have real friends who stick with me no matter what...
I have a stable job that supports me and our growing family...
I have my good health that allows me to do the things I love to do...
...and I have my faith that makes me feel at peace with myself and with everything else.

And as if these aren't enough to make me happy, I get this as a birthday present from the one who holds my heart:



Thank you so much, Honey! You always try to make my wishes come true, and you never fail.

Life is great, and I am happy to be alive! I celebrate this day with pure joy in my heart, and I sing with praise for all the blessings that keep darting my way :)
