Thursday Thoughts before turning 34 tomorrow 2

Thursday Thoughts

What is up my friends?  I have no idea what to write today other than it has been a seriously long week and I’m very glad that tomorrow is Friday.

Tomorrow is also my 34th birthday.  Tomorrow is also the day I buried my dear father 31 years ago.  My birthday is always a mixture of a happy and sad time because I am reminded of the man that I was robbed of knowing.  I would like to think I have memories of him deep within, but I was only 2 years old (turning 3).  The things I do think that I remember aren’t memories at all but rather photos I’ve seen, I’m sure of it.  Nevertheless, at least I have those and that’s more than some others have of their parents. I just wish I could’ve had more time to get to know the person that I get told oh-so-often that I’m like, so much.

In other news, I’m on a roll! I have been writing every single day since November 1st.  Say what now?! What has gotten into me?!!  I can thank Nano Poblano for that.

I hope you’re all having a good week!  Check back tomorrow for my happy/gratitude list and don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY to win $139 credit towards a easy, pain-free teeth whitening system with Smile Brilliant. 🙂

  • Oh man, momma… this post fills me with a lot of feels, so I can’t imagine what you’re experiencing. That’s gotta be so difficult to have your poppa’s death coincide with your birthday 🙁 Please reach out if you need anything. seriously, I’m always here <3

    Go you on writing every day this month! I totally wanted to participate in NaNoBloPo or whatever it is lol, but I had a feeling it just wasn't going to happen. But I'm sad. I love those kinds of challenges, and am so proud of you for doing this!

    Off to enter your teeth whitening system now 🙂 XOXO

    Congratulations on your birthday again, girl! I hope you had a fabulous day… although how sad that it’s overshadowed by your father’s death 🙁 I am so sorry you never got to know him.
