Happy Birthday to Me!

To ME! 
Yesterday I celebrated my birthday and I had an amazing time with both family and friends. I love that life is full of surprises, laughter, joy and love among many things.

Do You Know Who Is On Your Side?

"In Prosperity Our Friends Know Us. In Adversity We Know Our friends."  John Churton Collins


If there is ever a life lesson that we learn only after we've been through trial and tribulations, knowing who is for you and knowing who is against you is one of the greatest lessons of all.
