Happy Birthday To Me!

Hello Friends!

37 Years Ago Today, I left my mother’s warm confines to confront cold reality. Like literally. I remember.

I have grown a little since then and life has had it’s ups and downs. Living for God has made the difference and I am blessed with a wonderful family, church, house, and job.

During these tough times I would like to impart that life is not a rat race to the top or a fight to aquire the latest toys.

Follow God’s ways and develop relationships with those you love.

That’s all I have for this post. I wish every one of you a blessed Sunday!

          No. It is hard to name chicks unless they really show a real personality trait that stands out. Sometimes they are boys when you thought they were girls!

    Happy birthday! Rats are famous for running around in sewers, so it makes sense that their races aren’t on top of everything.
