Birthday thoughts

My husband asked me if I had garnered any wisdom from my years of life on this rock so far…Life is all about love. Loving and being loved are the greatest gifts this life has to offer. Finding Jesus in everyone I meet and hopefully finding Him in myself. I will not miss a moment,…
