And it already feels GOLDEN!

Am I excited?

Nervous?

Anxious?

Depressed?

Yes, no, no, and a most resounding NO!

Those who know me well

understand this year will be like every other.

Why?

Because I love my birthday!

my polka-dots with stripes day,

my free-pass to be sappy-silly

so that if anyone asks,

“What is up with her??”

“IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!”

is the perfectly-perfect thing to say!

“Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you”

2 Corinthians 13:5

“Things of 50”

I plan to chat about.
