Sweet Birthday

Today was a sweet reminder of how much I am loved and appreciated – I think I forget that sometimes. I was happily overwhelmed with kindness, well-wishes, yummy food and desserts, and most importantly the nurturing love of friends and family. May I press on toward the beautiful future God has planned for me.

“Our home is your home”

Despite not having spent Christmas with my immediate family in nearly 8 years, today was another wonderful holiday. I am very thankful for strangers turned friends who continue to open their homes to me and allow me to feel the warmth and love of family on days such as this. May joy, love, kindness and generosity abound always!
