It's my BIRTHDAY!!!!

I was woken up this morning by my husband, standing by the side of the bed, playing a guitar, singing Happy Birthday.

Let's make note that he's never played a guitar in his life...

So it was a weird song of basic strums of strings... but it was the sweetest song I've ever heard.

Harvey Dent just stood there confused....

But yeah, its my BIRTHDAY!!!!






I always feel its appropriate that since my birthday is after Christmas that I can say, another year older & deeper in debt.  It just fits for a December 30th birthday.

People always reflect on their birthday on the things they did in the past year, & the things they want to do in the next...

Heck, I do good to remember what I did yesterday, much less the whole year...

& as for next year?  I just want to enjoy every day.

I realize even more as I climb up that hill (or am I over it yet?) that each day is a gift... tomorrow is not promised.  That you make it to your next birthday is an amazing thing that happens. 

So I'm going to tackle my next year with gratitude... that's it.

No big bucket list. 
No big check list of things I want to accomplish.

I just want to appreciate each day... every birthday I am blessed with...

even if that means more aches & pains... more grey hair... even worse eye site.

It's still all good!



So here's to praying that this year is my best year yet...

full of blessings, full of friends & family, full of smiles & fun... full of life!

Now, I'm ready to soak up the day!!!

You have such a way with words and I cannot tell you the times that you have said exactly what has been on my heart and mind and I can't find the words...it means so much to read what you have written and know that someone knows/understands exactly what I am thinking and feeling!I hope and pray that you have a wonderful year and that it is filled with many blessings!
