Well, I'm now 31! Definitely not as traumatic as last year's big 3-0. I actually quite enjoyed this birthday; had some nice gathering with friends and happy days.
I found this website: Wordle to use with the kids. I did a great Faith Sharing activity with them using these "wordles" and they turned out so nice; profound actually. I took the day off yesterday to have a "me day"; spent it with some nice reflective and arty-time. I reread my journals from the past year and picked out some words to describe this past year of my life. It was probably the most turbulent, transition and grief-filled year of my life; however, it has probably been the most growth producing as well. Enjoy my artistic interpretation of my 30th year of life!
