I celebrated my 53rd birthday on Friday the 13th . . getting older doesn't bother me . . having my birthday on Friday the 13th didn't bother me . . . I dare black cats to cross my path . .lol
Getting older is just a number for me it has always been about looking back at my last year and reflecting on growth that I have gone through and the new things that I learned about myself along the way. I always say I am a work in progress and someday I will be where I want to be, but I don't want to settle or be content . . I want to always look for more in life than just settle for now. I appreciate all that I have and all that I have been given but I do know there is more out there for me.
I spent the day with my kids and wonderful friends they were very generous with their gifts and their time and I enjoyed every minute of my day.
I was blessed to have spent the early mornings hours of my day laying next to my friend as his breathing changed and I heard him drift off to sleep feeling his warm skin next to mine still makes me smile.
I spent the evening dancing in the park with both my kids acting crazy and laughing until their belly's hurt . . and then siting back and just watching them be silly with each other . . it was like they were little kids all over again . . joking with each other . . loving each other.
On days when I am feeling down I will remember these two beautiful moments from my day and remember just how much God has blessed me.
