    That’s a lot of great things! I’ve learned that no matter how hard life can get you can get through it. It’s not the end and those hard times teach you many things. Great post and Happy Birthday!

    Happy birthday!! I shared your post on my Facebook. You learned a lot of interesting things this year – I learned something new today. Apparently I should not have bought a 7 week old kitten. They should be 12 weeks before they leave their mama. Noted for next time, I guess!
