Hello dear readers! Today is an extra special day for me because..................... It's my birthday!
I am now a teen!
When I woke up this morning I didn't feel different. But I suppose the fact that I'm thirteen hasn't really sunk in yet. It always takes a while every year. :)
But just the fact that I've lived for thirteen years is a very emotional thought. Why emotional? Think about it:
You are here. And thats all there is too it.
I guess what I'm trying to say is this: Every breath that I take is a blessing. Every hug from a family member or a friend is a sacred thing. Every "I love you" said to me is something that will live forever in my heart.
And its emotional for me. Because God chose me to live when He could've chosen anyone. He chose my family to be safe on 9/11 when we could've been torn apart by that horrible tragedy.
And that is a huge blessing.
Think about it. And pray for the people who aren't as fortunate as you. I know I will be.
