Today is my 18th birthday! I know that everyone who reads my blog probably already knows that, but I just want to write a little about my day. :) I'm not gonna make any amazing speeches or anything. Just gonna say that I had a more wonderful day than I ever thought I would have, simple though it was.
My day started with opening some cards and a couple little giftys from my folks ( journal, magazine, recipe cards ). Then Mom and I went out shopping. :) I got two shirts ( b&w, bogo ) and a pretty purple stocking cap. And a ( free! ) Caramel Brulee Latte from Starbucks. :) Blissful yumminess! :) Then we scrambled home to tidy the house and cook because we had a family from church over for dinner - the family I go stay with a lot.
My bd celebration is not yet over though, because there is a collective ( surprise...except I accidently found out ) birthday party for several people including me tomorrow between services! So excited about that! :)
Ok, maybe a little " speech ". Ahem. :D
I am so thankful to God for bringing me through another year of my life. This past year has been one of good times and difficult times. I am blessed with so many things that so many don't have or take for granted: A firm foundation in Christ, loving family and friends that support me, a home, food, clothes...and many things above and beyond that that are extra blessings - things maybe I wanted but didn't exactly need.
