Happy birthday to me!

Today I am 32 years old!

My life has taken some bizarre twists and turns, but here I am celebrating another year of life; healthier and a wee bit wiser.  There are so many people to thank. I will not forget to include myself in the blessings since I know that I am part of my healing process too. If you would have talked to me a year ago, I would have pleaded for the genie in a bottle to grant me a wish of turning back the hands of time. Aches and pains, frazzled by gray hairs creeping in when I look in the mirror and even pesky wrinkles, it can be overwhelming. Today though, I feel like I am in a much better place. I can honestly say that I do have more work ahead of me, but you have to start somewhere, right? I'm not tickled pink with the fact that I am getting older, but I don't see it as such a negative. I have so much more to look forward to. I still hope to get married some day...the hopeful romantic in me can't wither away. I have learned so much over the last few years, and my re-birth, if you want to call it that, both on the physical, emotional and spiritual side has given me peace to gracefully age as God intended me to.
