Happy Good Friday, Happy Earth Day, & Happy Birthday to Georgia!

Today is a very special day for me.  It's Good Friday, Earth Day, and Georgia's birthday.  Wow! 

I want to briefly talk about this amazing trifecta of events. 

Good Friday is the day Jesus died on the cross for our sins.  On Easter Sunday, we will celebrate His resurrection.  For Christians, this is the most significant holiday of the year.  I am eternally grateful to my Heavenly Father who made the ultimate sacrifice, so we can live at peace with Him one day.

Earth Day is something I celebrate every day.  For as long as I can remember, protecting our beautiful planet has been near and dear to my heart.  I often laugh when I think about the day I learned about recycling and environmental protection in elementary school.  I came home that day and attempted to throw out all of our cleaning products and aerosol cans.  My mother was less than thrilled.  I love our earth and all of the beautiful people, animals, and plants on it.  Let's unite together to maintain and protect our amazing planet.  This year, I've made a pledge to use my car less and am buying a bike.  What will you do to help protect our planet?

Five years ago today, I adopted my sweet dog Georgia.  I had never had a dog before and didn't really know what to do.  I'd like to thank my wonderful friend Pam for going with me to adopt Georgia and showing me everything I needed to get take care of her.  Adopting Georgia was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  She loves me unconditionally and provides me with more love than I could ever hope for.  Happy Birthday Georgia!  I love you more than you will ever know.

I hope all of you have a very blessed day and weekend spent outside with loved ones.  Happy Good Friday, Happy Earth Day, and Happy Birthday to Georgia!
