I'll Cry If I Want To...

Today is my birthday. I'm 29. Let's just get it out there. It's like jumping into a freezing cold pool...and yes, it's as c0o0o0o0old as I'd imagined.

Not only am I 29, but this is my golden birthday. I don't know why, but ever since I was about 5 yrs old, I've looked forward to and anticipated this birthday. However, at age 5, I was imagining tons of gifts, cotton candy, and my name written in lights. There may have been fireworks, and I was going to be signing autographs...I'm not gonna lie.

It's funny how things change. I guess 24 years will do that to you. So, I'm not wishing for fireworks, gifts, or autograph signing...although, I'd take some cotton candy if offered...just gonna put that out there! :) I don't feel like I'm leaaaaning forward with squinted eyes trying so hard to peeeeeer into the future...but today, I'm standing tall, looking around and realizing that my life is splessed. That's a word I made up a few years back because I thought the word "blessed" sounded too old fashioned. But hey, I'm 29, so I'm going to say it, my life is busting at the seams with just good old fashioned blessings!!!

Most of all, at 29, I learned through living it that there is no road I could go on, no pit I could fall into, no direction I could lose where God is not going to be right there with me...and that, is what makes this birthday, a great one. Even a golden one.

Love to all of you, and now, I'm going to sign off, 'cause I'm pretty sure there's some celebrating in order!
