Another Milestone

I turn 28 today. Twenty-freakin'-eight! Two more years and I'll be in my *gasp* thirties!

I remembered how miserable I was on New Year's Eve of 2006, contemplating the fact that I would be turning 27 then. I even told my girlfriends to not remind me about actually turning 27 lest I jump off the Penang Bridge. Sad, huh?

Still, with all the theatrics and drama aside, this has been a great year thus far. It's my first birthday as a married woman, and in a wholly different environment altogether. I have great friends who have not forgotten about lil' ol' me here down under. And even though I still don't have a job just yet (don't remind me, yeah?), I'm happy.

I have a wonderful man who loves me dearly, a lovely family who support me in whatever I chose to become or do, and beautiful friends. The Lord has been so faithful to me even though I'm so much less. Words cannot describe how much I thank Him for His abundant blessings upon my life.

So bring it on, 28, and whatever good or bad surprises you'll throw at me. You are but a number.

It'll be all right.

Happy Birthday Beauty Queen! Hey, you're one year older than my sis. Now both of us know that =D

And oh "You are but a number." That was epic. Thank you for that because I am having age issues myself.

Age is just a number. Don't measure your life by that number, but measure all the good stuff you have around you!

Happy Belated Birthday!
