Today is my birthday...I'm 36 today. I can honestly say this year will be better than last...not cause last year sucked...but cause I have learned alot of lessons...and I believe when one "learns" from their lessons they move on to new ones....I'm ready for new lessons...I had those same "old" lessons for a lonnnng time! lol
My day has been great! I woke up to the man of my dreams saying "happy birthday baby, time to get up"...can you beat that? Then got all kinds of love, hugs and happy birthday's from my kids....lucky mommy! After the kids were shipped off to school I went over to my girlfriend Tamara's house. There is where all my local girlfriends were. Tamara, Rhonda, Mimi, Darilynn, Mel, Ronni and I all had a yummy breakfast made by Tamara & Rhonda. Did I mention yet that I'm spoilt?? AND while I was out and about with my girls my best boyfriend EVER was at home baking me a "gluten" free cake. After breaky I went home, picked up that bbf ever and went shopping....he spoils me...too much sometimes I think...but according to him today has really just been what a "normal" birthday looks like. I've had good birthday's...but I think this year is different cause of how happy I am. My life is great. My parents ROCK, I have great kids, my brothers are great....and the icing....well Eddy is the icing....see great :) So anyhow...after shopping we came home, Eddy iced the cake....the kids put on too many sprinkles (cause that's what birthday's are about right...the sprinkles) then they all laughed and joked about not having enough candles! buggers....then I wished and I wished and I wished for my new wish (don't forget Eddy is a wish of multi birthday's come true) so time for a new wish....don't worry I wished it :) I'll keep you posted!
Kids are now with their Kevin....and Eddy is in the kitchen...which I have been banned from! I love him...did I mention that! I am checking out all the wonderful facebook "happy birthday's" and all the super great messages from my online scrapbooking group....did I mention how lucky I am and how happy I am with my life?? anyhow...so I sit here....waiting for the steak, king crab and Greek salad to be ready for me to eat! Then we will watch a movie...perfect. Just a perfect day.
You know what I love most about my life right now...this very second....that every single person in my life loves me for me. I no longer hide a thing...I don't need to be anyone but me. I'm proud of me...I'm proud of my strength...I'm proud of my decisions...I'm proud that I can stand up and say "enough"....I'm proud that I can learn.....that I can listen....that I can be loving and I can be loved. It's been a journey my life...but I wouldn't change a thing.
Here's to being 36 and feeling Great! :)
