Its my birthday!!! Now, normally I would probably be depressed right now cause I'm getting "old". But today, I am celebrating getting old, and kind of happy about it! I love birthdays, and everything that they involve! I love dressing up, spending time with friends and family, being a princess for a day, taking lots of photos, cake, everything. Don't worry, I make a big deal of every ones, not just mine!!! I have treatment this morning, then let the festivities begin!!! My two other roommates from college (we had a big apartment) who happen to be the last two members of a silly thing called DAG (another college story for another time) Newman and J Rog (again with the nicknames haha) are coming down to celebrate from DC!!! YAY!!!

Tonight some of my close girlfriends are taking me to dinner, since I am just usually a a bit more tired on days I do radiation, and then tomorrow, we are having a full on celebration!!!! A weekend full of birthday fun! I have great friends! Cards and gifts have already started rolling in, and I will post at the end of my birthday to brag about how blessed I am and show you pictures of all our fun activities!

On a side note from my birthday, I have some followers from South Africa. How cool, right? They stumbled across blog randomly and sent me a touching and beautiful post card. I want to say Thank You. When I get messages encouraging my faith and strength, it only makes me want to fight that much harder! Your card really touched my heart, and my glad my story has touched yours!

Stay tuned...
