Today is THE day 08-08-08!!!
Happy Birthday to me!

I have waited a very long time for those numbers to align, isn't it cool?
I remember my 8th birthday, sure.
I remember 08-08-88, went to San Fransisco with my parents, who knew I would live so close now?

I'm 40!
So go watch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics for me. Or just sit for a moment and delight in the delicate eternal circles that make an 8, isn't it beautiful? :)

You are now excused from my silliness to return to your everyday life. I'm gonna go "party" with my family.

well, came across your comment at "takin time to smell the flowers" and just wanted to come on over and wish you a happy birthday as well. I read your profile and so understand the sentiment " been through the fire for a while, but ... seem to be getting shiny". God knows what he is doing. and you enjoyed your 30's so even through the tough times you must be daily trying to surrender and trust and enjoy life as much as possible. I know, not always easy, that is why it is a journey of faith, a journey to holiness and perfection in Him... Not perfect yet, but will be someday. :-) will browse around, if you do not mind.. .the book on your sidebar, unplugged creativity, i think it is called, caught my eye, and need to see it better. have a great day, and be blessed!!!

Little Trivia... )on 8-8-88 I was pregnant with Cam and that is the day Fergie gave birth to Princess Beatrice.
080808 is simply the coolest birthday. Being 40 is SOOOO much better than 30 and the 8-8 thing is simply the icing on the cake.

Have a blessed day

Love ya Troy

I am blessed to know you not only online but in real life. I cannot imagine life without you. You are a blessing to those around you and you are constantly on the look out to help people whether you know them or not.

You laugh, you love, you nurture and protect. You are loyal and true. You do not judge quickly and encourage everyone around you to be true to who they are.

You are a prayer warrior, a woman who desires to have the Heart of God and seeks Him constantly. Amid inexplicable hardship, you still praise the Almighty and lean on Him for your guidance and leadership.

It is my honor to know you.
I love you.

Happy Birthday
