Well Now

"Birthdays are good for your health. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest."

At 7:55 pm the night before my birthday I just had a revelation. This is the first time in my life I have spent the night before my birthday alone. I was in Jacksonville for the first 18 years, and woke to my family. Then for 7 years I was in Tallahassee. I had roommates and then Melanie for each year from freshman year to 25.

Tonight I will be alone. While I am not sad I am a little pensive. Because honestly there are more of these nights in my future....if my luck with dating holds out;) And I love being independent and I love my life. But a small part of me wants someone to be here with me tonight.

Now, I love my "me time" and so I think I am gonna stay up til midnight and pray in my birthday. Maybe have a delicious cup of tea and snuggle with a good book. I think I am good enough to find ways to battle a current of loneliness and instead turn it into a tide of peacefulness.

In Conclusion, I thank God for birthdays past and pray for his guidance and love for birthdays to come! Night!
