Family Fridays give me an opportunity to share about family – that including friends who make up our family! – and moments that have impacted my life.
Happy Birthday To Me!!!
So today, I think I’ll talk about myself. And share a few pictures. Because, it’s my birthday, so it’s all about me. (Or at least you can let me pretend that for a few moments!) I am 34 years old today, and will celebrate it with the Marine and The Kid, which is quite the blessing when I look forward to what next year will most likely hold. For three years in a row, the Marine has kissed me and wished me a happy birthday – and next year, that may not – most likely will not – happen.
A review of my 34th year of life follows.
This year, I …
mourned the walking on of this amazing Marine, as well as the deaths of many other military members, and prayed constantly for ongoing safety.
There are many of you without whom I wouldn’t have gotten through the past year, and for you all I am extremely grateful. It has been no walk in the park, with many ups and downs, but it has been a year of strength and courage building, and that is more necessary than an amusement park any time. Thank you for celebrating life with me!
