It is my birthday and I am a whopping 32 years old! I remember when that was so old! I mean when my mom was 32 she had a son who was already a deacon and a 7 year old and a 4 year old, I had better get cracking! I have been spoiled rotten today (or as my Grandma Nita used to tell me, "No CJ you are just well loved") and had a lot of fun!
I so far have learned a little about life, a lot about myself, my kids, and my strengths and not-so-strengths. I am usually a pretty positive person but I have my moments and the other day was one of those. I asked all of my friends on Facebook to help me make a list of "Things That Are Awesome" so that I can reread it anytime I need to be reminded just how good life is! This is what you guys came up with, if you want to add to the list just post a comment below. :) My dad used to tell me, "The scripture says 'men are that they might have joy' not 'men are that they might wade through it all and endure'" So here is to at least another 32+ years of joy! :)

So this is my 100th post. I have put it off because I felt like the 100th post should be something special. Well I was online today and watched this video and realized that this is probably one of the most important messages I could put on here for myself and for my kids in the years to come. I hope you watch it. (Scroll to the bottom to stop the music player so you can hear the video)
