Happy Birthday Jessie! I love your list! Have you been praying for wisdom or did the Lord just give it to you? I hope you have a wonderful day!

I thought it was your birthday today. for some reason I always remember it cause mine is the 7th of another month. You should probably go do something dangerous this year, but not painful.
later

Happy Birthday! I love your list, it made me think about my life and it made me laugh out loud! I can so agree and relate to a lot of your things...like the Mom being right and starting to sound like her, I hope our kids will one day say the same thing about us!
