Today is my birthday!! Yippee!! We won't be formally celebrating with cake and gifts until the last of July when Daughter #1 comes home from her visit with my youngest sister and my Daughter #2 (and it's Daughter #1's birthday--we're going to celebrate them together). I usually don't do much for my birthday anyway. :-)
I don't mind confessing that I am 46 today. Aside from a couple minor health issues, I am doing great. I have plans for another great year--lots of fun with the kiddos left at home, expanding my knowledge of health and herbs, gaining wisdom, loving and laughing, and enjoying the challenges that each new day brings.
Last night my sweet little guy--Son #6--woke me up at a few minutes after midnight. The dialog went like this...
Son #6: Happy Birthday Mommy!
Me: Thank you Sweetheart.
Son #6: It's been another year, hasn't it?
Me: Yep. (Groggy smile and big hug)
Son #6: How old are you now?
Son #6: (Mulling this over) Oh. OK. (pause) I love you so much Mommy.
Me: I love you so much too Baby. (More hugging)
What an excellent start to a birthday!!
