Happpy Birthday to Me!!!!

Today is my birthday.
I am 28.
Things change as you get older.
You grow up.
Some things grow out.
And even some things grow down.....ladies.
I have four gray hairs. Maybe one for each of my girls.
I was recently measured, I have already begun the shrinking process.
At this rate by the time I'm 40 I'll need a booster seat to see over the steering wheel.
I have three moles that I didn't have when I was younger.

At this point, birthdays aren't that big of a deal.
Actually the first thing that comes to my mind being 28
is that my oldest daughter will be turning 10.
As I had her when I was all of 18.

Some things that haven't changed about me:
-my freckles
-I still love my hair color
-My big boobs
(even though they aren't were they used to be)
-I'm still funny
-I love photographs and taking them
-my favorite hobby is still scrapbooking
(ten years now)

I'm so thankful to have been born 28 years ago.
I could have been born to anyone.
God placed me in my mother's womb.
He has molded me into the woman I am.

Psalm 139:13-16          
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

So Happy Birthday to me.
