It's my Birthday

37 years ago today I was born at 2:00 am and with a tooth, I was a pain in the ass from the start:) Last year I totally ignored my birthday. I had this I idea that I would be married and have another baby by the time I was 35. So when 36 hit I was less than thrilled. This last year was the most challenging year of my life. It came with an amazing amount of growth and change. It made me a stronger women, a better Mom and friend. It taught me that God is ALWAYS there, and will not drop you on your ass. I wouldn't take any of it back, but I'm sure glad it's over. This year ahead I'm giving to God. May I follow his will, and use the gifts I have been blessed with to help as many people as possible. And Mom thank you for the whole giving me life thing. I love you.
