They Say It's My Birthday

Sunday is my 28th Birthday

Incase you missed it, on Tuesday I got an early Birthday present and was told that my transfer went through and I will be moving in August to Sacramento, California. 
I feel incredibly blessed because in my 28 years of life I have been given a loving family, great friends who feel like family.


Now as my life begins a new chapter in these coming months, I realize more than ever that the really important things come to those who sit and wait. The old saying, "Patience is a virtue" could not be anymore true. Also if I had to admit, the phrase, "Everything Happens for a Reason" is also ringing deafeningly loud. 
 
If I had moved this time last year, I wouldn't have had enough money in the bank to get a home loan. I would have missed out on the birth of Baby Olivia. I wouldn't have got to go to Memphis for Elvis Week. I wouldn't have got to spend a fun summer with my bestie Erica. I would have missed out on a lot. 
To say that this birthday is a big one doesn't cover it. Not only is it another year older but it's another year wiser. It's the beginning of something new and fresh. It's going to be a year of firsts. I hope you all stay along for the crazy ride that's about to begin.
