Happy Birthday, to me.

Today is my 25th Birthday. Happy Birthday to me. I am a quarter of a century old. Happy Birthday, to me. I cannot believe I am already 25. Happy Birthday to me. That means only 5 more years until I turn 30... Happy Birthday, to me... Yes. Elementary school was good to me. I can add.

Although I am not a mommy, either growing in my womb or arms, their are still many other areas in my life that I did conquer before my 25th Birthday!

I have gotten and stayed married... In exactly three months, we'll celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary! (Don't let the sixth year mark take away from the whole stayed married wording. Yes. There were times when I nor he thought we would make it one more day better yet one more year!)

I graduated from College with a Bachelors of Science in Human Services/Management! This is something so many people thought would never happen, including myself! I am so very proud of myself for sticking it out but not without the help and encouragement of my ever loving husband and family not to mention the many vents to friends...

I have been a homeowner. Currently a rentor but I was, once upon a time, a proud joint homeowner.

In my 25th Year of life, I will complete at least one of the three books I am writing. This is something very close to my heart as well. I still am in awe over the thought of ME writing a book... Really???

I have moved from my hometown in Georgia where I lived from 1990 to 2008 to a never-been-to-before Missouri! And to think I did this and orchestrated the move and all by myself! Charles was useless in training in Oklahoma!

I guess it is a good thing I have come to terms with the whole still not being a mommy on this big monumental birthday in my mind... I am not only still not a mommy but still not pregnant and it doesn't look like I will be for quite some time.

I do have the same hope I have had the last four years though. One I do not think will ever change. I hope and pray that by my 26th birthday, I will be a mommy. Preferably celebrating while holding my newborn in my arms but I'll gladly take holding him/her in my womb too!

So celebrate with me on this day that is so bittersweet for me... I am sad at the loss that this milestone brings yet joyous I am here to celebrate with my loved ones, not to mention having my mom and Ray here personally to celebrate along side Charles and I!
