Well, in keeping with a long standing tradition, I have decided to wish myself a happy birthday. Rewind a few years and you’ll find me writing myself notes saying random things like, “Happy birthday, Jehosheba! You’re the best!”
Instead of reminding myself of my awesomeness this year, however, I’d like to send a special thank you to Someone else.
For all FOURTEEN(!!) years of my life, I’ve felt loved and accepted. From before I was born, to the moment where my fingers hit these keys, I’ve been wanted. Things aren’t always easy, but they’re worth it because I know that I’m not alone and that I have friends and family who will stick right by my side.
Through all the ups and downs of my life so far, God has always been with me. Within the quiet whisper in my head, the encouragement of my friends, the loving gestures of my family, the pounding music in my earbuds and the hand that wipes my tears away in the middle of the night, He’s been singing me a love song.
So to myself: happy birthday! To all of you guys, thank you so much for making today special and for being a part of my life! And to God, the one who’s been there for me all along, thank you for giving me another year to serve and honor you with my life!
Have a great day!
