I wanted to do this post on my actual birthday, which was the 16th. But I failed, and have also gone through the whole week without doing this post but while its fresh on my mind, I want to simply commit this entry of:

1. At midnight I got CARDED! I was so excited to hang over my ID and show them "I'm 21!"
2. Also at midnight I had my first free drink (at the Garage) which I think was a combination of Captain Morgan a and some pineapple flavor
3. That morning my sweet friend Caymen had cooked me breakfast and got me a book I had been wanting "Irresistible Revolution" (thank you!)
4. On my way to work my grandmother called me and sang to as she does every year and I love it

21. Wrote a letter to God
"Father I thank You, thank You, thank You, for giving me 21 years on a place You laid down by Your hands. That You have blessed me so well and that this is a day to celebrate. Many memories have come from these years, especially the most important, committing my life to Jesus. 'By grace You have been saved' and yes I have been by your beautiful grace. I just continue to pray that I could be a light to people for as long as You allow me. More years to know more of You and experience this life. More time to develop lasting friends, grow in fellowship, bear fruit, continue to do art, be a wife, mother and sister of Christ. Father than You for what You have already done and whats to come."
