I’m 29 today!!
I’m not one of those people who cares about getting older… especially since for most of this year I already though I was 29!
Hot Hubby let me sleep in and woke me up with freshly baked chocolate chip waffles and snuggly kiddos. We all ate waffles in bed with no regard to where and how many crumbs were ground into the sheets.
Then I watched my little family leave the room and close the door so I could lounge in bed and read… ahhhhh.
I heard my children and husband playing.
Inside Out started playing on the iPod and I couldn’t help thinking how thankful I am for my family and my Faith.
When I felt like emerging from our room I came out to cheers from the kiddos and a tired looking Hubby. I sent him to take a nap and set the kiddos up with stickers (thanks Nana… or is it Nannie now?) at the kitchen table while I swept the downstairs and vacuumed the couch. I even smiled when the kiddos knocked over a glass and the sharp shards spread across the floor (in the manner that glass usually does) everywhere.
Why am I so content?
I mean I am cleaning on my birthday, the kiddos shattered glass and my hubby is taking a nap!
Because this is everything I have ever wanted.
I’m a wife adored by her husband.
I’m a mother needed by her children.
I’m a woman who takes pride in her home.
I’m the daughter of The King.
Now, my dear invisible friends, my sweet little family it taking me out to lunch.
Sending you wishes of bliss on my birthday!
(my 1st birthday with my parents… notice the awesome homemade b-day cake and the flowers lovingly embroidered on my dad’s shirt by my mom!!)
