Here are my random birthday thoughts:
1) If I had written the story myself of turning 40, I could not have made it nearly as blessed as it is!
2)Wayne is my soulmate. I love him more than life itself. He has taught me how to love, how to laugh, how to appreciate life. I love him so much more than I did when I was 22, so much less than I will at 80.
3)Leslie and Virginia are my life's greatest accomplishments. I see two beautiful young girls becoming healthy, smart compassionate women in front of my own eyes. I can't wait to see where God takes them.
4)Who do you know that goes to work every day and loves it? I do! Everyday I get to do what I dreamed of when I was a little girl. I'll be a nurse forever, even after I retire, I'll never stop taking care of people.
5)My family and friends are entwined. Family is a sweet bond that is never broken, no matter how far distance takes us. Friends that are closer, become the family that is so far. Women old enough to be my mother, and young enough to (almost) be my daughter have made my life so rich.
6) The Cross. Thank you for the cross Lord, thank you for the nail pierced hand. Bearing all my sin and shame , in love you came and gave Amazing Grace.
7)More than I deserve, that's what I feel like. More blessed, more loved.

These are my random birthday thoughts.
