I haven't had a great year, in fact it has been horrible.
The friend monster has taken some friends away from me,
this is not quite where I thought I'd be today.
My hair is still short, those blush pink shoes still haven't gone on sale,
(Im a size 8/8.5 if you are wondering ;))
I still dont have that dream job, lets not even begin with the dream man.

Dear Lord, nothing seems to be going right!

But, I'm not here to complain.
What I really want to say is thank you.

Im grateful for the horrible year that just went by,
because it means I have lived to see another one.
I am grateful for the friends I have lost,
because I've gained some invaluable ones in the last year.
I am grateful for where I am in my life,
because I know you are taking me somewhere.
I am grateful for the job that you are preparing for me
because I know you are in total control.
I have 2 hands, 2 legs, 2 eyes, 2 ears all working!
I have a mummy and daddy complete, and all my siblings are in one piece!

Dear Lord, I really dont mean to complain.
All I want to say is Thank you.
(Longer hair and the blush pink shoes will be nice sha.)


Happy Birthday to me! And CrazySexyLadyX!

Happy birthday. :) I love the honesty of this post cos most people are too deluded to see beyond the so-called bright side. Recognising things are not going according to plan and still trusting God is what true gratitude is about. Ignoring the bad is denial, not faith. Hope you have a wonderful day sha. :))
