Okay, so I don’t even know where to start here. Tonight is my birthday and I am having a blast. My family is in town and I had a dinner at my house for them. So, my mommy, daddy, other mom, sister, niece and best friends were at the house. We had such a great time, especially when we tried to teach my hilarious mommy how to text. You can imagine that the night was all laughs…except for when it was time for me to open the gifts. There were a couple of funny cards…I have to tell you about those later. You will love it! Then, I started to open gifts. I got some Chanel earrings and a necklace from my sister and niece which you know I put on immediately and then I got to the bag Janet had brought in with her….
Omigosh!!!! First of all, thank you Greg and Munique for your precious gifts. Greg, the necklace is beautiful and Munique the tribute is amazing! Thanks ILT for the beautiful flowers. Thanks Sally and Christina for coordinating and sending everything. Now to the part that made me cry. THE CHARM BRACELET!!!! Seriously? Seriously!
You guys have to be the most thoughtful group of people to ever grace God’s wonderful earth. I could tell that so much thought and planning went into this and I have no idea how you did it, but I am beside myself with gratefulness. The Bible with EPH 3:20, the high heel with Chanel, the music staff with Love your Backups, the flowers, the best friends with I love my Gayles, the Africa with MNM, the heart locket for me and my mommy and the Tiger are the best representations of this year’s journey.
Now, I know you have to be wondering why it took me so long to send this response. Well, it is now Monday morning and I spent yesterday at church, having family over for brunch and getting ready for the skating party with my friends that I had not seen all year. I will give you details on the party later. All of this was happening as I was trying to figure out a way to end this message with the most profound thank you ever.
I still have no idea how to be profound about it, but as I sit here with my retainer in, head wrap on and blinds closed
, I cannot help but be so thankful to God for putting such wonderful people in my life…people that take me for who I am and then inspire me to become a better person. I know that I don’t deserve you all, but God mercifully put you here to have my back and I can’t tell you how much it is needed and how much it means to me. I love you! I love you! I love you! I love you! Okay, so that wasn’t profound, but you get my point.
