it's ma burrrrthday!!!

the number 18; the number for responsibility, adulthood, and maturity. or maybe not quite maturity...but yeah. you get the idea.
i'm perhaps more freaked out than excited about being an adult. you heard of that 'toys 'r' us' theme tune - "i don't wanna grow up, i wanna be a toys 'r' us kid"? well...that's precisely me! as a kid, all you do is eat ice cream for breakfast and wonder if you should play 'mummies and daddies' or draw after lunchtime. mannn life was easy.

but the fact is, life will never be easy, and i gotta say, i'm thankful for the tough times too, especially in these recent years as it is through these situations i realise that God has continually blessed me. i'm thankful that God has known me before i was even born and that He has let me reach this big ole number; i wouldn't even be celebrating my birthday if He didn't decide to create me. my birthday is a celebration of life, and one of which God has given me. - this is the biggest gift i will receive on my birthday. there's so many people to thank too, for nudging me along to where i am now. i'm just pure thankful. *happy tears*

every year i wonder where time passes...literally, it passes at the blink of an eye, just like most adults i've met say. i'm not a child anymore; no "kid"-ing (haha?). i don't feel older, i don't feel like i've suddenly moved on from being a teen, but i do see that i have grown much closer with The Lord these couple of years and really learnt (and still learning) to be a child He wants me to be. so here i am, 18. let's take a look back at my 'childhood' years.
