Today is my BIRTHDAY!! yep, 21 years OLD! I'm feeling so old.
Seriously, last night out of nowhere I just started crying my eyes out. It was just hard for me to realize that today was my birthday and I had to go to work, and it is just another typical day for me. My parents always made such a big deal out of birthdays, I dont remember a birthday ever going by without being celebrated. Every birthday my mom, sisters and dad would wake me up singing happy birthdays and with lots of gifts. I wouldnt go to school that day, I'd go out for breakfast, get my hair and nails done, go shopping and at night My mom would either throw me a party or we would go out with my friends and family. This is my third birthday without my family around, and its not getting any easier.
Dont get me wrong, I'm very thankful that my Lord has blessed me with one more year of life, I'm also thankful for my lovely husband whos trying so hard to make today feel like my birthday (he's been calling me birthday girl all day) and to my lovely friends and family who went out to dinner with me Saturday. I just miss being a kid, and to think that I waisted so much of my time wishing I was an adult.
Birthdays arent the only thing that started getting dull as the years go by. Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving... The holidays are no longer fun. This year I had said to myself, that I would do what I can to make this christmas feel like it once did. But parents and sisters wont be here, so I'm no longer motivated :(
Okay, I need to cheer up! So what always brightens my days? PINTEREST, and in honor of my Birthday today will be all about birthday themes and ideas!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!
Have a happy Monday!
