I turned 23 yesterday. Normally I don't feel anything when another birthday rolls around, but this year was somewhat different. Yesterday morning I woke up feeling refreshed. Physically, mentally, but more so spiritually. I feel like God has some BIG plans for this year of my life and I'm really looking forward to seeing what He has in store. Our lives are starting to get back in order since my Dad passed away in June. Things aren't the same and they never will be.

I missed my Dad a lot yesterday. I really missed him asking me if I felt any older this year. The answer? Nope. I actually feel more full of life lately. God has been slowly changing throughout the year. He has been molding me into this person that I don't even recognize some days. Crazy, but I like who I've become. All in all, it was a great birthday. Blessed to have such great peeps in my life.
