today i am 25!!

happy happy birthday to me!!! today i am a quarter of a century! woohooo!

i don't want to talk about things that i have learned, but things i am grateful for, because there is so much to be grateful for.

i am grateful for my amazing, truly special, incredibly patient, inspiring husband who makes me a better person everyday. 

i am grateful for my Lord and Savior, who will never leave my side, never ever ever and whom I can pray to at any time of need and who has blessed me beyond my wildest dreams. 

i am grateful for the woman i am becoming.  the growth i have made this past year.

i am grateful for this blog, and the friends i have made through it.

i am grateful for my nieces and nephews, for the joy they bring to me.

i can't do this.

i can't pretend to be happy go lucky right now.

my grandpa passed away last night.  i'm kind of a wreck.  but what i keep thinking is this is the greatest birthday present God has ever given me, my grandpa as my guardian angel.  starting on my birthday.  that is what i am most grateful for on this birthday. my new guardian angel. 

i'm too emotional to talk about what an amazing man he was.  was.  wow.  ouch.  that's why i've been awol all week, we knew we didn't have much time left with him.  

please keep my family in your prayers.  please.  i'm not taking this very well. 


  1. Happy Birthday!!! And I am so sorry for your loss.


  2. Praying for you and your family but HAPPY BIRTHDA!

  3. I'm so sorry, Lauren. It's hard to lose people we love. But yes, you definitely have another guardian angel looking out for you.
