Thankful for this life!

Today is a very special day for me as I am celebrating my 32nd birthday. For the longest time I couldn't remember having a party with friends to celebrate my birthday. I would often prepare for my husband, children and my mom's birthday but not mine. I don't know maybe because I am always worrying about costs. But today is different. I have decided to hold a dinner for my friends. Friends who had been there for me when I needed them the most. Friends who had given me godly advice. Friends who have helped me realize all the blessings that I have in this wonderful life. Most of all I would like to celebrate this day to give thanks to our God for the beautiful 32 years of existence. I thank Him most for his precious gift for me, my family. He had given me a loving, understanding and patient husband, who had been very supportive of me. He had been my partner for my ups and downs. Helping me to overcome my weaknesses. He may not be the knight in shining armor but he completed me. I am grateful for my 2 sweet, loving and thoughtful children. They are our everything. I am also thankful for my Mom whom I have indebted my life. For all her sacrifices, and even up to this time for her continuous service and love to me extended to my very own family. There are a lot of amazing things and even challenges that we encounter in this life, but we should never forget to thank for all of those things. Trials in life make us a stronger and a better person. I am sure that each and everyone of us has something to be thankful of. Have a great day to all mylotters!

enjoyed reading your post ... life is too hurt when decorated without gratitude. God truly knows life is hard, because it does not deserve to be sad. Enjoy and just run this life in accordance with His will
