It's really almost here (tomorrow!). Today is my last day to be 30-something. For my milestone this year, CC agreed to let me use our frequent flier miles to book a hotel in our city to celebrate my birthday with some of my girlfriends here. We headed out of our little neighborhood to downtown. We ate out at a Mexican place. It's been a long time since I've eaten anything like this...a fried chimichanga. I could only polish off 1/2 of it. Mmm.
It occurred to me prior to the day how much God has blessed me with friends. Everyone on staff is so dear, I would have taken them all had I not been limited by skymiles. Also, there are friends on the other side of the world. I thought of my wedding party...cousins C and H, sisters-in-law C and K. High school cohort S. College buds K, L, and M. So many people I love, so many gifts from God.
