Happy Birthday to me (for yesterday.)
I didn’t have a big party or anything.
I spent the day with my husband and my kids.
They gave me some beautiful gifts.
Each one of my siblings contacted me with birthday wishes (all six of them!)
I received birthday wishes and lovely gifts from friends and family.
My dad called, my mum called in (they both work weekends.)
I ate some of my favourite foods.
I enjoyed a cuppa with my sister.
I went for a short walk to get an almost one-year old to take her nap, and smiled as I walked past the hospital where I was born, thirty years ago, and where she was born 29 years and 4 days later.
I was reminded several times over of all the things I have to be grateful for.
For all the amazing experiences I have had so far,
For all the wonderful things that my future holds.
But mostly, I am grateful for right now.
So. Much. Love.
