Some people would prefer that people not know that it’s their birthday.
I am not one of those people.
My birthday is tomorrow! And I’m going to be the big 3-5.
Wow. Time sure flies when you’re having fun!
I’m always happy when my birthday comes around. The weather’s getting warmer, the summer festivities are on their way…and I have enjoyed yet another year on this earth! Despite its challenges, I’m very, very grateful to be here. Especially since I have so many wonderful friends and family members that I love so dearly. For example, I happen to be married to the most wonderful man in the world. Aren’t I just the lucky one?
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I know that I’m extremely blessed to have all the great friends and family that I do (you all know who you are!).
I could mention all of your names right here, but then I would be afraid I’d forget someone’s name. Oh, the horror!
Instead, I will just tell you about one more person: my sister Sheri. I’ve mentioned Sheri before on my blog, and I just want to reiterate that she and I have one of those special “sister relationships.” We know each other so well, and even if we don’t talk often, we always have and always will share that special connection that sisters often share. And again she showed how well she knows me by sending me the most thoughtful, clever birthday gift—check it out!
Isn’t this the coolest gift ever? I love it! And I love my sister.
And I love my birthday! I’m not ashamed to admit it.
