Happy Birthday To Me: Year 28

Freely Nat Birthday

It’s my birthday and I can do what I want to!

Freely Nat Birthday

I’m 28 ya’ll! Can you believe it? Time is really flying by. Every year it seems like life just keeps getting sweeter. I normally go all out for my birthday but this year I’m taking a different approach. Although I’m low key missing my weekend getaway. I know that I have other things that are more important to me as I enter this next phase of life.

As I watch everything happening around me I realize that I have NOTHING to complain about. I’m starting to stop and smell the roses. God has been so good to me, so why should I complain?

I’m expecting nothing but blessings for my 28th year of life. This faith walk isn’t easy but necessary.

Today, I’ll kick my feet up and enjoy a nice meal with a glass of wine. Life is good!

Happy Birthday, Mom

There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to RISE!

Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. Proverbs 31:10 (KJV)

Meet Sheila - my mom, she is everything you think about when it comes to a "mom." She isn't the bake cookies and volunteers in your classroom type of mom. She is the "I'll tell you when you're wrong" and I'll pray you through kind of mom.  I have always admired my mom's strength. She's a survivor and I'm blessed to have her.

Have you ever met someone with a sweet spirit? Someone who will give their last just to see you smile? That's my mom! She's patient, kind and a little shy. She wonders where I get my personality from but I know I'm just like her! (just an amped up version)

 

Mom,

Thank you for teaching me what its like to be a mom. Thank you for teaching me that I can do anything I put my mind to. (That's why I think I'm invincible!)  Thank you for loving me when I didn't know how to love myself. Thank you for allowing me to be broken (and helping me pick up the pieces). Thank you for helping me navigate single motherhood. More importantly, thank you for NEVER giving up on me.

I love you.
