Today is my birthday.  Today I am 48.

I remember when 48 was old.  Now, I think its YOUNG!

I am overwhelmed by the e-mails, texts, phone calls, and facebook posts from so many wishing me a Happy Birthday.  It is a reminder to me of just how full my life is, and how blessed I am.  My cup runneth over.

My kids both treated me with great birthday presents, and my husband is taking me out to dinner.  Just the two of us.  That doesn't happen very often.  And I am so looking forward to spending the evening with him!

I am reminded today of how good God has been to me.  And how undeserving I am of His tremendous blessings.  I am so thankful that I belong to Him and that He has forgiven me of my sins and is right now preparing a place for me in heaven.

For now, I hope He gives me many, many, MANY more birthdays to spend with my friends and family.
