Yesterday was my 26th birthday. I decided (in the face of negative emotions about getting older) to have a positive attitude about getting older – since you can’t help it anyway, you might as well embrace it. Twenty -six has nice ring to it. And I’m happy with what I – or, rather, what the LORD has accomplished in my life in the past, so I have no regrets. I am blissfully married to someone I have claimed I want to grow old with :), I am a mother to an adorable, pleasant child, and the year I am 26 I will bear another child. What’s not to embrace?!
Happy (several days late) Birthday Trina! Too bad I did not know about it on the actual day, the Offkey Crooners would have given you a call. 😀
Happy birthday, Trina! May God bless this year of your life!
I hope your birthday was a pleasant one, and that your 27th year is exciting and fulfilling.
And that picture is adorable indeed!
Happy Belated B-Day! Having turned 27 just last month, I had the same thought this year – stop being afraid of getting older! I have to look at what I have instead of what I don't!

Yeah, Alice, thanks for not doing that….seeing as I told you the password 🙂
I was going to hack into your blog to do a birthday post for you (when Anja and Olivia were here, I found out what your password is), but I wasn't sure how that would be received. 😀

A very happy belated birthday to you, and that is an adorable picture!! It looks like it should be on the cover of a book! 🙂

Happy birthday! God bless and keep you in the coming years!
Happy Birthday!!! 🙂
People have always told me that age was more about attitude than anything – I never believed it 'till I "crossed over to the other side". Yep, I'm 30 🙂 and STILL Alive and most days I feel 16. I believe a content heart makes our countenance light.(Which is the best wrinkle cream ever:)
Enjoy your family today. That will keep you feeling young!
That is a beautiful photo!
Well, Happy Birthday!!! I turned 26 a little earlier this year. I tried hard not to be depressed… I still have a hard time telling people how old I am… well, anyway, it hasn't turned out bad at all. Enjoy!
Happy Birthday! So, were the hot dogs part of your birthday present? Or simply a pregnancy present? 😉

What a great photo! You look so much like your mom in that picture! And Happy Birthday to you!

Happy, happy, happy Birthday, Trina! 🙂 May you have a *very* blessed 26th year!
Olivia Joy says
What an awful thing….(no, not the fact that you just turned 26) but the fact that I totally forgot to do a Happy Birthday post for you!!!!
What a great outlook on life!
