a different kind of birthday....

On this glorious wintery day, on January 12, 1987, I was brought into this world by two sweet sweet parents. Thats right, its my birthday, the big 2.4. I know, so old right? Not really. But in all honesty, I do feel a little more adult this year and a little less straight out of college-no clue what i'm doing-ish. I would like to say that today I can wholeheartedly enjoy my day- but to be honest, I'm not sure I will ever have a birthday like that. Because my birthday also happens to be the day that the earthquake hit Haiti last year, and today I most certainly think we should remember and update ourselves on the current situation there. Its known that I have a heart for missions- and one day, I will go to Haiti, but for now, I live thru websites such as world vision, compassion international, and doctors without borders, to hear the stories and see the situation and devestation that still engulfs the people of Haiti.

So take a minute today and remember Haiti in your thoughts and prayers as they deal with the aftermath and the year anniversary of the worst day of their lives.
