This birthday I had a wonderful present. Jamie and her father drove all the way out to see us. They arrived Saturday night. How awesome is that? Best birthday present EVER!!!
Since seeing my fiancee is the best birthday present ever there isn't much else I could really ask for. But, since it's my birthday, and therefore socially acceptable for me to ask for things I have this to say. I wish for my birthday that, if you haven't already or also feel the need to do again, give a gift to the Romanian orphans. Kids who don't really get anything. These have to share their birthday celebration with all the other kids who had a birthday that same month. They are the ones who really need it.
|Alin and I|
I saw some of my friends and other people I met in Romania, like Alin, who would get nothing, who had nothing. I felt a little guilty for my pre-mission birthday/Christmas avariciousness. When I got home I hated being asked what I wanted for Christmas. It had been refreshing to be away from all of that.
Therefore, since I already got the best present ever, in other words, spending a day with Jamie, I would like, for my birthday, if everyone would find a way to give to someone else. If you can't find a way to give I do know of a very good charity helping out orphaned and abandoned kids in Romania. The link to donate is just on the upper right of the page.
