This week, I turn 30!!! I really excited about this birthday. When I would think about it in the past, I would envision this huge bash. I’m not having the huge bash but I will be celebrating with some of my favorite people. I haven’t been this excited about a birthday since I turned 21. That was more about being able to go into a store and buy alcohol, than the birthday itself. This time, it’s about the birthday. These past 3 decades have been an emotional roller coaster. I have lost a lot and gained a lot over the years. More importantly, I’ve learned a lot about myself. I’m thankful for everything I’ve experienced in these 30 years. Thankful because there are so many who never made it this close to 30. I’m thankful for a healthy and prosperous 30 years and praying for many more years of the same!
