I do not usually make a big deal about my birthday..... ok I am so lying, I love birthdays!! This year however something was a bit different. In fact I almost forgot it was coming until people started reminding me that I was about to be another year older. My mother sending a gift 2 weeks early, the lady at the grocery store who carded me for wine (letting me know I was about to expire.. yeah in 2015), Hey, at least she carded me my hubby who asked to take me to dinner.
This year I was just not feeling the birthday thing. All I wanted to do was take the day off, and spend it with my little girl. When I tried to explain to her this morning that it was my birthday, she insisted that it be her birthday to so she could have cake. Today we have agreed to share my birthday so she can have cake. I think that is the only reason she likes birthdays so much . LOL
Today I feel humbled by my family, my friends, my daughter, I am truly blessed in so many ways that it's hard to think about being another year older. I have had close people loose family members, get sick, or go through things that people should not have to deal with ever. I wish that some days I had a magic clap that fixed it all for everyone. I have met some of the most wonderful, compassionate people in the last year, it amazes me how strong people actually are. This year I will take it all in and enjoy every minute of life. Thank you to everyone who reaches out to me at just the right moment, those of you who read my blog, those of you I can call friends, and everyone around me who makes me who I am. This is just the continuation of a wonderful life.
A TOAST to 31!!!
