Today, I celebrate my 49th birthday. Birthdays are bittersweet, a time to reflect on another year, to reminisce, to rejoice, to contemplate the past. I look back and see the goodness of God in my life. His taking a poor, country girl born in Trumann, AR and blessing her with so many good things....my sweet, loving Michael, my son Ben, my wonderful friends, my church, my talents....I am truly so blessed and overwhelmed by those blessings. God is ALWAYS so GOOD!
