I’ve got great news.

The groundhog did not see his shadow.

Early spring—here we come!

If you are from western Pa, you are well- aware of this yearly superstition/tradition in which we call, “Groundhog’s Day.” There was even a movie about it. You know, the one where the guy repeats the same day over and over.

Lately, I have felt like I’ve been trapped in sort of Groundhog’s Day.

Every day with all of the snow seemingly the same…and not getting out and socialized.

Today we are going to a birthday party and it made me anxious. It’s at a bowling arena and a place with high stimulus. Laser Tag. Arcade. Lights.

My five year old son was invited, so of course we are going…but it sounds like possible chaos.

But it made me think of what a hypocrite I am.

Here I am, running this awesome website called, “Party Gatherings,” and I’m not even looking forward to a birthday party? What gives? Celebrating life is what I live for and some anxiousness shouldn’t keep me from what I love to do best—to be with others and to party!

I do suffer from anxiety. But I do have a God that has promised me to always be steadfast and true. And Amen to that! Today I will get out of this house (something I have been complaining about for a week now), and today I will celebrate life!

Life is for living. And with God anything can happen. Birthdays especially, SHOULD BE celebrated! Just like Groundhog’s Day–they only happen once a year but they are a perfect reminder of how grateful we should be to simply be alive and enjoy God’s grace. 

“The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer.” Psalm 18:2
