I celebrated another birthday today. And, honestly, I couldn’t even decide if I should write about it or not. It isn’t a milestone year, or even a weekend day, and I didn’t have earth shattering plans or any sort of life changing revelation to share. I thought to myself, “what would I even write? It’s my birthday. Get excited.” Haha. Y’all know I am rarely at a loss for words but when I sat down to write my post this morning they just didn’t come.
But tonight, as I look back on my day, I realized that it was filled with calls, texts, facebook messages, instagram comments and the likes from people from all of the different parts of my life. Honey and I went to a lovely dinner while his mom watched the boys, and Sister and CeeCee spent the whole afternoon just hanging out with me after a delicious lunch. Beyond that, my parents, sister, in laws, extended family, besties, sorority sisters, high school friends, neighbors, new co-workers and even my kindergarten teacher took time out of their day to recognize mine. And that realization was when the words came.
Today, on my birthday, I am so grateful for this life, content with where I am, and incredibly blessed to feel so loved. I couldn’t ask for anything more. To the people I know that read this blog, THANK YOU for loving me so well. And, to those of you that I have not had the pleasure to meet, THANK YOU for coming back day after day to share this fun journey with me.
