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. ๐Ÿ˜€

    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!

    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. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Happy Birthday!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
    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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

    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? ๐Ÿ˜‰
