It’s My Birthday!

Yup!!! I’m a year older today. Normally, I’d do a long post of self reflection, but not today. Today, I just want to thank God for taking the extra time to create me. He has made me more beautiful than words can describe, and if He had given me the choice to decide what I wanted to look like, I would have never made myself this beautiful. I want to thank God for my life and for my health.

I want to thank Him for the family he gave me; I did not choose them, but if I had a choice, I’d choose them all over again, especially mom and dad. I want to thank God for the friends He has blessed me with, especially Igwe. I want to thank God for you wonderful readers and listeners; there isn’t a finer group of people on the face of the earth. I swear it.

I was about three or four, still in Russia

And I want to do all this thanking while starring at a picture of little Vera. She did not know then that she would grow up to be the person that she is today. But she is so happy for who she has become. As she packs her stuff in boxes, in anticipation for the move, she is beyond excited. She also has no idea why she is referring to herself as a third person.

Thank You, God. Happy birthday to me. Here’s to 2013, the greatest year in my life – for now. *kisses*
