Another thing I was told about being 21 is that I get to drink now. I have been asked I don't know how many times if I'm going to go out and get a drink on Sunday. Um no! I have no desire to consume alcohol. Why is that such a big deal? I've been told, "oh come on, just one drink won't hurt you." Why don't people understand I have no desire to drink something that makes me not think clearly. Also I am breastfeeding. So people want me to not think clearly and they want me to hurt my baby while I'm at it. Really? Think about it.
Tomorrow I am going to be 21. I am going to church. I am going to have a party with my Sunday School kids. Then after church I am going to have cake with my family. Then I'm going out to eat with my husband and daughter. I am not going to the bar or casino. I am not staying out all night. I am not sleeping in till noon the next day because I have a hang over. For me 21 is just another year. It holds no significance other than God let me live another year on this earth.
