Etiquette dictates women should never reveal their age, nor be asked it. But I, on the other hand, happen to be proud of how old (or young, depending on your perspective) I am.
For the last 18 years, I have successfully raised a bright and talented daughter on my own. In the last 10 years, I have happily built a comfortable life for myself and Camille, despite being thousands of miles away from the comforts of my immediate family. Life has been great. Not because I don’t encounter trials & challenges, because I do. All the time, as a matter of fact. Lest this post be judged as corny, I have to say that I have learned to see things through God’s eyes. I was created for a purpose, and every single day of my life, I continue to search for that purpose and live it the best way I possibly can.
Thank you Lord for giving me another year to take part in this thing we call life. I AM GRATEFUL TO BE 35.
