bad moods, blessings, best friends, and birthdays

So I've been all inspired recently to make positive new changes in my life.  Most recently, I've started "counting my blessings."  I realized how much I take the little things, which in reality are gigantic miracles, for granted.  For example, sunsets, sunrises, wildflowers, and rain-showers.  Each are blessings from God and I don't want to become desensitized to them.  I started making a list each day and it's been awesome.  However, Monday morning came along with my terrible mood.  And I had no problem letting everyone know about it too.  I was bitter about having company staying in my room, which caused me to move in with my sister.  I was sad about leaving for the rest of the summer.  All I wanted to do was spend as much time with my friends as I could before saying goodbye.  I forced myself to take a nap in hopes that I would try the whole "waking up on the other side of the bed" deal again.  Didn't completely work.

Moving on.  I ended up going to hang out with a friend after tutoring which started to lift my spirits.  However, I definitely was not ready for what awaited me upon my return home.  I walked in on my first surprise birthday party, not to mention my 3rd birthday party ever.  My friends knew I was sad about leaving and wanted to all be able to celebrate with me before I left.  I am convinced I have the best friends in the entire world.  God WOULD turn my worst day of the summer into a night I'll always remember :)

The initial surprise...

This girl. Words can't describe :)

And the rest of the night was history...

Thank you to all who helped make this happen :)
