Thirty-Seven



Today I turned 37.  37 years I have been blessed to be alive.  Last night I was able to go out to dinner with some of my best friends to celebrate.  It was a wonderful night and I had a great time.

This morning we went to church and I had the most wonderful time of worship.  As we sang "It Is Well With My Soul" tears flowed uncontrollably.  I held Lucy tight in my arms and breathed in every word.  It was a God-filled moment to be sure.

At one point this morning I looked over and saw Lucy holding my Grandmother's hand.  She then reached out and grabbed mine.  I know that the picture above is one that I will cherish forever.  I couldn't have asked for a more perfect birthday gift.
