26 years ago today the world became a little bit brighter because I was born... HA! Would it be weird to blog about myself?! I'll try and you can be the judge...
In all seriousness I do love my birthday, not just because it's a day solely devoted to ME (kidding), I love it because I get to spend it with the people I love! I know some people don't like getting older, it might be because I'm only 26 so it's not so bad yet, but I like reflecting on the last year. A lot of things can happen in a year and I could probably write a novel on all the things that have happened to me this year. I've grown a lot! I've grown closer to God, Greg, family and friends. I think that 26 is going to be a good year for me!
Fun fact about my birthday... it always falls on or close to the week of Thanksgiving. So usually my extended family gives me a gift at Thanksgiving because that is when we would see each other. When I was younger I didn't really understand that Thanksgiving was NOT about ME! I always thought it was weird that we did this whole elaborate dinner for me but we never really did that for my brother in June...I never told anyone until I was older that I thought Thanksgiving was about my birthday, I was too embarrassed when I finally figured it out when I started going to school and learned about the Pilgrims and Indians! :) Blonde moments for me started at a young age!
Today, I'm thankful I get to spend the day with my family and friends. I am also thankful to God and His rich blessings He gave me during my 25th year!
