My sister woke me up with a phone call at 6:16 AM singing, "Its ya birthdya, it's ya birthday!" lol In my family we have an unofficial contest about who is the first to wish someone a happy birthday. So suffice it say, this year she has won.
In typical my-life fashion, the buildup to this day was drama filled. For 3 days last week, every time I looked at the clock the time showed 1:17. Like seriously.
Then 2 nights before, I lost my file at work and had to redo an entire exercise that set me a full day behind all of my fellow trainees.
Last night, some neighbor was blasting Indian rock. Yes, like rock music with a flair of India.
I kept my cool. I was determined not to let the devil steal my joy because that is what he is – a thief.
A girl at work gave me a neat idea. Instead of going out and spending money on a birthday celebration day, treat myself to dance lessons. I may do acting classes or something equally fun!
Happy, Happy, joy, joy! My joy belongs to me – a gift from God. I was extra joyous when I found out at the end of the day that on my next paycheck to expect a RAISE!!!
HALLELUJAH! Happy Birthday to me!
