What a great way to turn 35
Friday, August 22, I turned 35 years old. I was kind of not looking forward to that number. I'm not really sure why because actually every year that God allows me to live is a huge blessing. Anyway, Jeff and I are smack dab in the middle of our shed clean out project and I looked at Friday as a day that I could get a massive amount of work done. On Thursday, the girls at work had given me gifts and we had brownies and ice cream so as far as I was concerned the whole birthday chapter was closed for another year. Oh well, shows what I know!! One of my best friends,Lauree, called and said that she would like to prepare a nice dinner for me and my family but I declined due to the amount of work I had planned on getting done. She was extremely persuasive and Jeff said that if someone was going to be nice enough to cook for me that I should go. So, reluctantly I accepted. Only guess what! We swung by our church on the way to her house to drop some stuff off and there it was. Just as I stepped through a door, SURPRISE!!!!!!!! Yep, there was a big old party waiting for me. I could not have been more surprised if I had waken up with my face sewn to the carpet! I have only had one other birthday party my entire life. We all had a great time. Thanks to all of my wonderful friends who helped to ease me into 35.
