Believe it or not, tomorrow I’ll turn 43. I saw this! your just read this first line and your eyes opened wide, your eyebrows raised high and your mouth dropped wide open. I know, I know, I look soooo much younger. When someone asks me how old I am, I always have to clarify of they mean my chronological age or maturity wise. I feel like these are vastly different numbers…
When I look into the rearview and press on pause, I am so grateful for all the beautiful people sharing my life, in 3 and 4 D, for being healthy and for living in a place where me and my family can feel safe.
I know it is cheesy (I warned you). But this is how I feel today. Tomorrow I’ll blow a candle on a Honey bread, the typical Korean desert, surrounded by my favorite bunch of crazies. My most precious presents ever. I thank God for protecting me from me from what I thought I wanted and blessing me with what I didn’t know I needed 🙂

Wow! Happy Belated Birthday! Awesome post…love your background of your blog; your pics are wonderful; and this last statement: “I thank God for protecting me from me from what I thought I wanted and blessing me with what I didn’t know I needed.” hit home for me! Powerful!
Thanks Pam, so glad you liked it 🙂 This sentence sums it all to me too 🙂 again big thanks for your kind words, means a lot to me. English is my second language so I am always very VERY grateful for the native English speakers for their patience and kindness 😛
Estelea…you speak English very well. It is great to connect with you. I have a strong fondness for your native language. I wish my abilities at speaking/reading French were half as good as your English. I look forward to reading more of your adventures! 🙂
Oh merci beaucoup ❤ I am already folllowing yours too, A bientot 🙂
Tres bien <–long time since I spoke French. Je suis si heureux aussi. (I hope I did that correctly!) A bientot aussi! 🙂
