My twin and I are celebrating our day today- from across the globe.
Really she was able to party before me,
since she is in Australia.
It’s never the same for me when we aren’t together.
I always have a moment of sadness on these years.
It just always feels a little off.
Partly, I don’t like the attention all on me since we grew up sharing the spotlight.
Still, we facetime and do our best to share in the day together.
And I have amazing family and friends who are so good about texting and calling
and showing me they love me!
Brian always making sure he gets me something special and expressing his love- though I must say he is good about that anyway.
(I am a little spoiled.)
Birthdays have always been special for us-
our mom made sure of it,
with streamers and signs and cakes and presents.
Each year remembered with pizazz!
I am very thankful for that kind of upbringing.
Today I am so thankful for all of you in my life!
I am blessed with an over abundance of love!
Baskets full to the brim!
What more could I possibly want??!!
Lessons from the past year,
I hope have brought me closer to God’s truth and to the real reason I am here.
This year I hope to learn even more,
thank God for those lessons that may be hard but teach me to give and love in an
unselfish and daring way!
Each day I am grateful for any good that I can show others,
though it’s truly just because I am the vessel God has chosen to use.
I am not perfect and have many cracks and flaws
but when putting God in first,
I can carry the weight of all things impossible.
So please raise your glasses with me as I toast first my twin and
giggle partner, as she holds all the things I would like to be,
she was the first friend I ever had and we share a connection that can’t be torn apart by miles and oceans.
And then I toast a thanks to Brian and my family and friends,
who allow me to be who I am
and love me all the same!
How special you make me feel!
And to all of you who don’t know me so well,
thank you for reading and following and being a part of my life.
You are in my prayers always!
Well….my goodness I must say above all
God is good…all the time!
He is the greatest artist I could ever know and love beyond love.
Until next time…cheers my friends!
