Twenty years old. Does that blow anyone else's mind? Who knew I could survive long enough to be this old. This birthday was a different in more ways than just starting into a new decade.
To sum up the beginning of the day I went to Regional Conference, which was wonderful. Had dinner and presents with the family (thanks so much family! muah!), and went to the CES fireside. I had great food, great company, and great spiritual experiences. What a wonderful way to start off your birthday!
Later in the evening I was going to have a small birthday get together with some close friends. Drew came over with me after the devotional and helped me make the cake so that we could have some sort of dessert for the party. Whilst in the middle of making it, Drew got a call from my best friend Elise (his sister) saying that her and her husband were in an accident! Long story short, they got in a scooter accident and are fine for the most part. Just some scrapes, bruises, and broken bones for Jeff. They were very lucky nothing else happened to them, but we did we end up spending most of the night in the hospital. Not exactly the way I planned my birthday to be, but I was hardly worried about that after what happened. The next 10 hours were still bad, but then the sad streak ended with the offer of a new job! And a fabulous dinner at Olive Garden. What a roller coaster ride of events it was in those 48 hours!
All in all, an interesting birthday. But, I did learn that things never go the way you plan and so you just have to roll with them. Even, on your birthday. :) I was blessed with so much on my birthday this year. The gospel, family, friends (alive! :)), and opportunities to serve. It WAS a happy birthday after all.
