The Countdown Begins!

My favorite season is Winter. I enjoy the cold weather tremendously....I love snuggling on the sofa with warm pj's, a blanket, and a good book! I love the feel of the cold wind in my hair and on my face! Winter is Grand! It's the season my Birthday is in!

It's Official: MY BIRTHDAY COUNT DOWN BEGINS!!! I have 31 days until my 4th Annual 29th birthday! HipHipHooray! My Parents always made a huge deal about my birthday. And even as an Adult, I still LOVE my birthday. Honestly, I think it should be a National Holiday.

In the past year, I have grown so much as a Woman of Christ. It's amazing to have the Joy of God in my life everyday. Here's are some of the things I have done this year:

I went to Houston for Mother's Day Weekend.

Attended an All-Night Youth Lock-In.

Drove 16 hours for a family vacation with 9 other relatives.

Lost 63 lbs.

Found 5 lbs.

Lost another 3 lbs.

I have a better understanding of my Mom as a Woman.

Cried for no reason at all (being a girl at times is difficult).

Laughed at Life.

Fell down 3 times in a year period (and this is without alcohol).

Embarrassed myself way to many times to count.

Prayed & Studied God's Word.

Blogged way to much.

Found a New Sunday School Class.

Found a new Girlfriend-Heather--YOU ROCK!

Learned about myself as a Christian.

Learned I have a long road ahead of me.

What else have I learned this year? Please refresh my memory, but be nice!

You learned that being told that your job is moving to another state isn't always a bad thing. It gives you what it takes to find a better job!

I always consider the month before my birthday, my pre-birthday month, the month of my birthday is my birthday month, and the month after is my post birthday month. That way I get to celebrate my birthday for 3 months. I'm kinda in to birthdays too.

P.S. Thank you for your prayers. I'm starting to feel better.
