Happy Birthday To Me!

My age and my weight are two things I'm not ashamed of. They are what they are and they are who I am. They are just a number but it's how you feel about yourself that matters and at this point in my life I feel amazing! As I turn one year older I like to think about all the things that I'm grateful for this year.

  • My life - without it I wouldn't be here. Nuff said.
  • My family - They are my foundation and reason for living. I've been blessed with a big family and love and respect every one of them. We are a very close and now that I'm growing my own members, my family is getting even bigger. You know what they say, the more the merrier! Three girls seems to be my limit but it's not the quantity but quality and I like to give them the very best of me. My own mother always did and I'm a girl of traditions. I didn't grown up with much but with a family like mine, I grew up with everything I could ever need. For this reason I treasure my family more than gold and don't understand how some people take theirs for granted. I want my girls to grow up having this same deep appreciation for family as I have because at the end of it all, it's family who will always be there for you. My new little addition to my family has been a surprise and a blessing this year to remind me again why I love family so much.
  • My health - Not long ago I felt handicap. Barely able to walk and fearing I may never regain my back strength has been short of an eye opener to never take the small things of life for granted. My health has become so important to me that I am so grateful to be my energetic self again. Don't know what you got till it's gone definitely applies to me here. You may not notice it on a day to day basis but when it suddenly quits on you, it becomes your sole goal to get it back. I know I was pregnant but for 10 months my walking pains got worse and worse until I couldn't take it anymore. Feeling pain free again is something to definitely feel grateful about.
So you see, the things we sometimes take for grated are the things I am most grateful for on this day. They are the foundation of why and who I am at this very point in my life. My life may not be perfect but it's not who we are but how we feel and like I said, at this point in my life I feel amazing! :)

Thank you God for blessing me with such a fun day with my family, I could not have asked for more. I truly feel loved every day but today was far and beyond my expectations. I truly had a Happy Birthday and with my favorite lens as my birthday gift, I can't wait for maaany moooore! :)
