My next post is #100

"Every problem has a gift for you in its hands." ~Richard Bach
The past 4 days have been extremely hard for me...but things are looking better. When things get tough one of my favorite things to remind myself is that God will not give me more than I can handle. But yesterday (while brushing my teeth - go figure!) it was like I was hit with a ton of bricks and I found major relief in the fact that the bad experiences I have had really are making me a better person. We all face our own "problems" and it is usually very difficult to look at these things at the time and be thankful for them...but today I am finally at that stage. I am thankful for my recent experience. Yes, it was an extremely tough day...and I'm sure that there will be tough (or tougher) days in my life...but next time hopefully it won't take me so long to get to the point where I am now.
That said...on to more fun things.
My birthday was this week. We celebrated early over last weekend. My sister made my birthday cake and it was de-lish!
Today is my sweet Grandpa's birthday! I can't wait to celebrate with him over this coming weekend!

DH & I finally used our fire bowl for the first time this summer! Whoo-hoo! I love that thing. Looking forward to using it again this weekend since we finally found a place where we can get firewood that is cut small enough to fit in it!

Still working on exposing myself. It seems I can't follow deadlines well but mine is to hopefully have it all exposed by the end of this weekend.

bummer on such a bad day(s). Judging by that cake, it looks like you had a great birthday! Happy day to you ;-) Hope you have a great weekend.

I have something that might make you smile and give you a nice 100th post - you can 'pick it up' from my monday post :)

I'm sorry to hear that you've had a rough few days. Happy belated birthday.

That reminds me, I never had a cake on my birthday. Hmm, I think I'd better have some cake today...
