I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone that showed me love on my birthday...in thoughts..words...and gifts!!! :-) I cried yesterday morning because I was overwhelmed. I was amazed that people were contacting me to wish me a happy birthday.I was just happy that people even remembered.
I got woken by constant beeps from several text messages...my mother called me very early as well. I know she was praying for me and Im sure I was saying Amen but I couldnt really remember anything she said so I called her back when I was fully awake. I know I did a post and I came online to check on it and I had messages from some of my favorite people in Blogsville. My dad called and we listened to some KSA songs over the phone. My ever busy brother called me from Hawaii. I was surprised actually. He always acts like he's too too busy for anything....but he remembered his baby sister. I chatted with my sister and her boyfriend all morning. People that I hadnt even reminded were calling me....emailing me...texting me.... Blogger Boo called me...I was tripped that he remembered. He's a great guy. My cousin in Manchy called me later in the evening and is getting me the ONE gift I really really want. All I can say is God is great and I've been favored. I felt loved....by God...by everyone. It was the most amazing feeling...I just had to cry. Infact, I surprised myself by what I was feeling...I didnt know I would feel....sooo much you know. A big THANK YOU goes out to everyone. Thank you for all your prayers...and I know that they'll be answered according to God's Will. I have the most awesome circle of friends and family
So.... in appreciation, please have a slice of one of my favorite cakes....it's on me! It's from ColdStone Creamery. It's Strawberry Passion. It's heavenly. Or if you're chanced to go to the actual creamery...try their apple pie a la mode ice cream in a waffle cup...that's my favorite
Thank you guys once again. God bless you! Amen!!
oh...I almost forgot to add that I played the lottery yesterday...megamillions...praying that I would hit it big time...I understand how this can quickly become an addiction. The person at the counter had to teach me how to play cuz Ive never played before...not even 1 of my numbers showed up o...nonsense! As tempting as it is I think I'll keep my hard earned dollars and not waste it again. But seriously I was praying to win...wouldnt that have been great? I already was planning what I would do with it...pay off all my friends debts from school or whatever...buy my sister a car....I talked to my sister yesterday about me playing...told her I was praying to win...she said something to me that I'd never thought of...she said God answers prayers...it just may not be the answer you want. Hmmm...Thought that was interesting...cuz I guess I always figured God answering prayers meant "YES" to what I was praying for...
