This month is always very significant for me. Not just because it's my daughter and I's birthday, but because it is the month where many take the time to give THANKS in an intentional way. It's the month where I get to celebrate the life I didn't think I would live past the age of 15, and the life of the gift of LOVE God granted me, in the beautiful baby girl, I never could even dream of having!
I've always been very simple when it comes to my birthday. I don't ask for much. Just presence. I love being around people that I love and that love me. Now, don't get me wrong, gifts are always nice, but I prefer just having a good laugh, food and creating new memories!
For those that know me well, they know that serving is one of the things that capture me most. And this year, for my birthday, I want those who want to celebrate me, to celebrate it a little differently. I don't need a birthday party. We can do that on any day. You all know how much I like to eat! And Dominican Cake comes in handy on ANY DAY! But what I truly want is to be celebrated by family, friends and followers joining me to help others. To see smiles on people's faces by being the hands and feet of Jesus with you all is a GIFT in and of itself. Whatever money you'd want to spend extra, donate it to a cause that matters!
So here is what I want everyone I know and knows me to be a part of this month.
For my birthday, choose 1 or all 3 of the things you'd like to do with me! Sign up and meet me there!!
