It's Just Another Day!

Another year older and another year wiser (so I hope)!

I know that your birthday is suppose to be a special day, but for me today seems like "just another day." Of course, I'm sure it had to do with having to go to work today. Couple that with spending my evening at a coffee shop studying and working on a paper and presentation. (Now, before we decide to lynch the professors that are causing me this work, I better let you know that I do have an art for procrastination)! I know...I know...It's a terrible habit (procrastination, that is), and it's one I hope to break very soon!

But, although it seems like just another day, it's still a day to celebrate! The good Lord has given me another year on this planet. Another year with my family. Another year with my friends. It's been a very good year for me. One full of growth. My family grew by one very special girl (my 4-1/2 month old), and I feel that I have grown both personally and professionally.

So, although today may sound "ho-hum," I've still been able to keep a positive and grateful attitude. Why? Because although every day is just another day, it's still a day to celebrate!

Here's to hoping your days are days of celebration!

P.S>I must send out a "Happy Birthday" wish to two good friends of mine since high school. I've been blessed to share this wonderful day with the both of them.

Happy Birthday!!! Good luck with the paper and studying. I think I follow you for presentations and you're always a tough act to follow. The Lord is awfully generous with his blessings, isn't he!

Bob - Thank you for the kind words. I don't know how tough of an act I'm going to be to follow this time around, though! I'm a bit drained! And yes! God is awfully generous! Good luck to you as well!

Shauna - Thank you for visiting my blog. It really has been great sharing a special day with you and Shelby! Don't forget: Although it's only by hours, I am still younger than both of you ;)

Erik - I suppose a professor who expected us to start on it earlier in the semester ;)

The thing is, I had such a hard time grasping the concept of how little old me could "change the world." That, and trying to tune in my frequency!
