Hopeful



I've always been excited to grow older each year (we'll see if that reaches a limit, maybe in another ten years?) and I have a feeling that my 25th year will be one of my best yet. My 24th year was wonderful in a lot of ways, but it was also filled with huge challenges. I think it was a year of growth--as every year should be, at least a little bit--but I really felt those growing pains over the past 12 months.

I'm 25 today, and I have a wonderful, hopeful, positive feeling about the year ahead. I see good things coming.


p.s. A big Happy Birthday wish to my mother-in-law, whose birthday is also today. I just love sharing a birthday with her!

    Happy birthday Kate!!! Praying and hoping that the past year's challenges will have been the preamble to lots of wonderful fulfilled hopes. God does seem to work that way a lot of the time :)

  4. A very Happy Birthday to you!!!!! Hope you have a wonderful day! I share my birthday with my brother in law as well as a good friend!


    I am 31 now and I think 29-30 was a huge year of growing in a lot of ways (mentally, physically). I'm happiest in my 30's!
