February 17th: I Love.....


It doesn't matter whose.  
Anybody's birthday is cause for celebration in my book.

Today happens to be my birthday.  
I'm my 40s.

I had fun plans in store.
Really fun.
But, as life would have it...
those plans have changed.
Obligations have come up.

I was pretty bummed about it.
Honestly?  I still am.
I bought myself some tulips in an 
attempt to lift my spirits.

They worked a little.

And music from
Jason Mraz always makes me
so happy.
Lately I can't get enough of his songs.

Bottom line?
I'm super-blessed.  
And anything I spend doing on my birthday
is to be treasured.

I'll be repeating that to myself today.

Thank you, God, for giving me 
another year to celebrate.
And for giving me the 
hope and courage
to stretch my wings a bit 
as my 41st year takes flight.

Change is definitely in the air.
And it feels good.

Happy Birthday, Jen! Sorry your plans fell through...isn't that just the way?

My birth day was spent on the road driving towards vacation, which I thought would be great, but ended up NOT being so terrific.

Those tulips are cheering ME up just from the picture...hope they do the trick for you today.

And 41? That's so YOUNG!
