Today I am 28 years old! Usually my birthday is a big deal for me. I like lots of fanfare and "yay for me" kind of stuff. This year I am feeling very mellow. I think it is because this next year is going to be a waiting year, waiting for the things I really want to do in and with my life. I wish I could just fast forward and be there! But I know that I have important things to accomplish and learn in the next year. And God's plan is always better than mine. Funny how I always have to keep reminding myself of that!
