Monday's musings 16: Birthdays, the greatest milestones of life

Hey guys,
Steve here.
Aren’t birthday’s just so nice? It’s the day you feel the most special. It’s the day people celebrate you. It’s the day you take one more step forward in life, by turning one year older. It’s another year of your life gone, and it’s one step closer to Jesus.
I post this, as my birthday is no more than 1 day, and 3 hours away. I’m not looking forward to it because of the presents (I didn’t even ask for anything really this year), I just, for some reason, feel more special on my birthday. I feel as though the world is recognizing and celebrating me for who I am. I know that, if only for that day, a lot of people think of me, and are truly wishing me a happy year.
Another great things about birthdays, is that you’re always in a good mood. If something bad happens, at least for me, I can be reminded that it’s my birthday, and that little bit of joy can boost my mood. Also, it doesn’t take coffee to wake me up on my birthday. I wake up, realize what day it is, and joy and anticipation of the day to come fill me.
And on a final note, my birthday is a day for me to look on all that I’ve accomplished over my past years of existence. It’s a time for me to be proud of how much I’ve grown, and recognize all my successes and failures.
And when the day is over, I can go to bed, thankful for the years I got to spend on this Earth, and look forward to whatever adventures may come in the future; a future of computers, god, blogging, my cat, my family, and last but not least, my best friend.
Thanks for reading,
type you later,

how my day went (thanks Givving!!!)

Before I post this, I just want to tell you that I hope you had a really good thanks givving. Here is how mine went:

Today, I got up and hung out with my sister for a few hours because both parents had work. Then, my grandpa picked us up, and we went to his house. We spent the day there and celebrated thanksgivving. I am not much a turkey person, thus I ate just mashed potatoes. Yep, I’m just boring like that :). Well, after everything winded down from the celebration and everyone who came left, I just hung out with my cousin Thomas and watched some fps russia on youtube with him. That guy is really funny! (fps Russia).
Well, my mom came and took me home around 10:20, and now I am posting this because it is almost 11:00 now. That is all I did today.
