Grateful for the days

As I begin my last year in my 30's I am filled with joy and gratitude
Gratitude to My heavenly Father
 "Jesus sought me when a stranger
wandering from the fold of God;
he to rescue me from danger,
interposed his precious blood"
I pledge to embrace the wrinkles, to count each laugh line as hard earned 
Each stretch mark as a reminder of the blessing of motherhood
To count my blessings of family daily, to cherish, forgive, and love BOLDLY
To tell my friends, often, how much their friendship is a gift I treasure
To strive to live more humbly and selflessly and without fear.  
To patiently wait without worry for yet to be answered prayers
To count every breath as a blessing
Thank you Lord for this day!


  1. Happy Birthday! Enjoy your last year in your 30's. Girlfriend let me tell you-you will enjoy the fabulous 40's! They bring freedom.
    Wishing you a blessed day...and year :)


  2. Happy Birthday Polly! I hope you have had a very blessed day! You are a blessing to so many and I am glad to have met you.

  3. Your kids sure are smoochy!!! Happy birthday, Sister Friend. I'm so happy I know you.

  4. Happy Birthday! Love the words to the song, brought back memories from singing in the choir from the "Red Book."

  5. A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU (a little late!!!)
    Your kids are so adorable--I pray that you had a wonderful day!!!! I just ended my 30s and turned the big 40 in March and I was/am just so grateful to be alive. That doesn't mean that I don't wish my rear-end was firmer, my face was smoother and that I still had the energy of a 20 year old--but life is such a blessing. I know you feel the same!!!! I can't wait til I meet you in person (I can't believe we've already been here since February and we're leaving for home on October 1st!!!)

    Again, a late, but sincere, Happy Birthday!!!



Your kind words are such an encouragement, thanks for stopping by
