Another year older...

Well, it is officially my birthday!  35 years... yet it seems like yesterday I was riding my bike down the driveway as a 10 year old little girl without a care in the world.... Life is such a vapor.... But I have so much to be thankful for.  

The Lord has allowed me to live 35 years and it is a great blessing indeed!  But the good news....He didn't stop there!  I have been blessed with such a wonderful husband, who puts my needs and desires before his own, who loves me with a love that is unfathomable, who is my hero and best friend!  I've also been blessed with the greatest kids that a mother could ask for!  How they put up with me, I'll never know.  I am so thankful for the past 35 years, and I pray that the Lord will continue to bless me with many more.
