Its My Birthday.....Tomorrow.

So I am turning another year older. I am not really a freak out because I am turning a year older type of girl, so its no big thing. I really feel like getting older is a blessing, I mean I would never want to be 15 again and for more than one reason. Age brings wisdom and experience and perspective which are all extremely beautiful things. Growing older also bring wrinkles and recognition of gravity and bits of gray here and there which in my opinion are also very beautiful. If I could choose to be 28 forever and everything would stay the way it is right now or choose to grow older and take all of the signs of aging with it just to be able to see what else God has in store for me I would choose the latter no questions asked.

I have much to be thankful for over the last year much has changed, blessings have been continually poured out and God continues to surprise me daily. I have had a happy, healthy, successful and very full year. I think this past year I have grown more individually in reflection of me through Gods doing than any year in the recent past. He has taken time to work on the root of ME which has been challenging but also very satisfying and wonderful.

So here's to another year. I will spend it catering a 15 hour day and then enjoy a late dinner with my friends and my wonderful husband. I will also spend it being thankful for all that I have and be anxious to see what the next year has in store.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
I agree there are really good things about growing older.
Can you believe we've been friends for like...29 years?
Hope you had a wonderful day!

I hope you had a great birthday, Jessica! Congrats!

I need to contact you, though it's no rush. But I don't have your phone or email...my friend is having a family reunion at the KOA next summer and is looking for a caterer for the anniversary dinner for her grandparents. They're hoping to provide salmon, and don't want anything too fancy. They're thinking they might like to just do it in a church basement or something but anyway, I said "Hey, I know someone!" but I wasn't entirely sure you were still doing things on your own or whatever. So, anyway, send me your email or phone and I'll be in touch! Thanks!
