A Growing Birthday

A few days back I got to celebrate turning 34–and this birthday was the best one so far! Several friends gave me flowers, my Mom gave me a birthday brownie, besides other things, and I even got a couple little succulents. With a wedding coming up, I was a bit afraid that I didn’t deserve to celebrate my birthday too with so much wedding things going on; however, Stephen took the lead and gathered people, cooked breakfast with me on my birthday, and took me to get Chinese food. Love poured in! All this love keeps surprising me. Thank you all!
