Dusting Off The Adventure Hat- It’s My Birthday
Birthdays don’t mean a lot to a lot of people, for some it’s just another day. Birthdays have always meant a lot to me. For me it’s a time to honor the life of someone you care about, a time to celebrate their life so far and everything they have achieved. I particularly like to do something special for the people whose lives have impacted mine in some way. There are people who have touched my life in such a way that if they had not been born, my life would be drastically different.
So it’s my birthday this Sunday, and I’m thinking through all these things. I always tell people the best thing you can do for me on my birthday is to tell me if I’ve made a difference in your life. That is the most encouraging thing to me, knowing that He is working in my life in a way that is serving a bigger purpose, knowing that things are different in this world because I am alive- I think it’s something we should all strive for. The thing is, it’s hard for a lot of people to express that. Some people will come right out and say it, some will send you a card with some thoughtful words, some will buy you a gift of some kind. And while there are a hundred random things someone could buy me (coffee, coffee giftcards, a life size cutout of Mark Foster and band…), there’s something in particular that I’d like to ask for this year.

- Repost this. Forward this link to your friends, post it on your Facebook, retweet it. Ask people to read it, consider giving $10, or just repost it themselves. It means a lot when people hear it coming from me, it means even more coming from you.
If you have more questions about the team, the trip, or anything else, I’d love to talk with you. You can get me on Facebook, at BeckWattier@gmail.com, or 251-422-3071
