My 26th Birthday

So I am not only thrilled I'm 26, I'm also extremely grateful to be 26! 3 months ago I really didn't think I would make it to my 26th Birthday. I didn't know if I would live to see another June 5th. This day means so much to me. I can't express my deep gratitude for my Heavenly Father and how he has helped me not only survive, but start to live again. I am not completely healed, but I am on the right track. I am finally getting my life back. I will never take another Birthday for granted again. I will never take another day for granted again. I wake up each day and thank Heavenly Father for allowing me to have another day on this earth. It's the best feeling to know that I have 1 more day to spend with my sweetheart Dave. I owe all of these great blessings to all of you. I am alive today because of the amazing people who helped me survive. I can't thank each of you enough for all that you have done and do for me. I truly would not be here without all of your generosity. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!Today has been great so far! I woke up to my house completely decorated from head to toe in HOT PINK!! Dave had woken up early and decorated everything! I LOVED IT! Next, I went outside and he had done my most favorite thing in the world, he had used side walk chalk and used up the whole entire drive way to wish me Happy Birthday! It took him 2 hours! That meant the world to me! I can't tell you how excited I was and what a huge smile I had on my face! The sweet relief society and decorated my house with balloons and a huge sign as well. It is so cute! Dave then put me in the car and took me to my favorite meal of the day....Breakfast! He took me to get biscuits and gravy! Nothing could be better on your Birthday :)After breakfast we came home and I climbed back in bed with my Nutella and Banana and had a little treat while reading Hunger Games. I had all my family members call and leave me messages, because of course my phone was off. ;) Then I got ready for the day, and Dave is just about to take me to go pick out a nightgown (because they are my most favorite thing!) at the mall and go to dinner! I still haven't decided where yet, but it will be good! My in-laws also came over and gave me the most beautiful necklace and cupcake that I can't wait to dig into!
My sweet friend Mya has made my Birthday cake and she is bringing it over tomorrow so we can have cake and ice cream. I'm so, so, so, so, excited for that! She is such a sweetheart and so incredibly talented! When I get the cake tomorrow I will make sure to post lots of pictures of it! I will also post pictures of my Birthday tomorrow.Oh, and yesterday (yes it's kind of been a whole Birthday week) Dave took me to the Zoo! We had so much stinkin fun! I absolutely love the Zoo. I was sad because the Polar Bears weren't there, but there was the most beautiful Wolf which made the entire trip worth it. :) Anyway, thank you again to all of you for helping me be able to wake up today and have another year on this earth. June 5th really is the greatest day of the year! Happy Birthday to me! I'm so thankful to be alive.

You are a true fighter and I have to say you are gorgeous! Happy birthday to you. You and I share birth dates and this time, I celebrated mine at venue NYC with my husband. And I totally get it when you say that people around you gives you strength and helps you heal faster. It happens!
