A Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Day

October 29, 2012

I wish I could Photoshop in everyone who is missing

In the not too distant past, I turned 28. I typically refrain from mentioning my birthday, and the fact I’m even acknowledging it here is a bit out of character. Why, you may ask? Birthdays were never a big deal for me or anyone else in my family. I guess it’s because I feel I had little to do with my birth (that was all my parents… *shudder*), and little to do with me aging another year besides avoiding getting myself killed.

But I guess I bring it up this year because I can’t help but feel thankful. Despite my best intention to keep it on the DL, I have friends and family that make it hard to forget how blessed I am. Many I’ve known for at least a decade or more, some two while others are a bit more recent – and I can’t help but thank God for putting these good people in my life. Admittedly, I’m closer to some more than others. And life has definitely spread us out a bit, with folks located locally as well as all along the East Coast, the Midwest, West Coast, Asia and elsewhere; yet their insistence on showing love, even when unprovoked, is extremely humbling.

So it’s really a simple concept but it blew my mind all over again. At the end of it all, I’m pointed back to God. I am covered in Love, whether I seek, embrace, ignore or reject it. And that’s Amazing Grace.

And with that I wish to say: Friends, thank you. God, thank You.

Fun fat fact: Did you know that a slice of Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake from Cheesecake Factory totals in at roughly 1600 calories? Not that I ate it or anything……

The candles may be imaginary, but the good folks who gave me the cake are real – I assure you. I did not buy myself a cake.
