>Today, I celebrated my 38th birthday. I brought a portable easel for my painting and some acrylics paints  for my birthday presents.  I had lunch with a close friend at Pizza Hut in Defiance,Ohio. I thank God for my soul, and spirit. I had growing in knowledge as I grew older. Bless God for my birth. I thank my mother for raising me in church, giving me love , teaching  me about God and giving  me life. I hope to celebrate birthdays until I am over 100  years-old.
