C H A P T E R 23| IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!! Thank you, God, for giving me another year of life. Thank you for all the experience of this past year; for times of success which will always be happy memories, for times of failure which reminded me of my own weakness and of my need for you, for times of joy and sadness which drove me to you. I thank you for all the blessings I have received. I can't wait to see all that you have for me in this next chapter.
