So my "About Me" has changed today. I'm no more "almost 35 year old mother" I am "35 year old mother". Some women/men/people don't enjoy their b-days. I actually enjoy mine full heartedly. I enjoy the cake/fanfare/cards/well wishes/dinner out with family. Today I turned 35 and went and ran 4 miles at 5:30 a.m. with my BRB and did our normal therapy session. It was a great way to start off the a.m. - hug and "happy b-day" in the a.m. hitting the road to run 4 miles in the nice cool, star light of morning. Work was good today and many well wishes and cards, etc graced my desk. Unfortunately, with increase in age I am now hitting the reality that my friends and even myself are at risk to lose our loved ones. I went to a visitation for a friend who lost her father this past Friday. My friend has always amazed me, because as I am in visitation line she says out loud- somebody's b-day is today- always so selfless and focused on others as she has to stand next to her father's casket for 9 + hours visitation today. Hugging her teared me up and reminded me that enjoying your b-day is so worth it because the alternative isn't that happy- not enjoying another b-day. So I leave you with pics of my precious kids who along with my hubby made from scratch smores cupcakes- they were yummy! If you have a b-day coming up or within the this year or next :)- please enjoy it! It is a day to celebrate life and all things great about your's.
