About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

Today is my birthday!

Today is my birthday - so this post is later in the day. I know Birthdays are not supposed to be as big of a deal to an adult as a child. However, I love birthdays! (Now mind you not necessarily seeing my age get 1 year older), but I love that on your birthday your friends, and family take the time to call, send cards and just tell you "Happy Birthday" or that they "love ya" . How special does that make you feel!!!
Now words of affirmation is one of my "Love Languages" I confess. It is amazing how special we feel when someone takes the time to tell you how important you are to them, or that they just enjoy talking to you or spending time with you. The gift of appreciation is such a gift it kinda of lifted me off the ground & I swear I just floated everywhere I went today!

I am always overwhelmed at how special I feel by the end of my birthday I promise I want to pass that feeling forward to my friends & family. Gifts are nice - however appreciation or validation is a sweeter gift that touches our hearts long after our birthday has passed.

Has anyone touched your heart on your birthday with affirmation or validation? How did they express themselves (call, card, email, a face book shout out, flowers with a note, I know there are some I haven't thought of)


  1. Happy Birthday!!!!

    My kids made me a book once where they wrote what they loved about me, poems, drew pictures, all kinds of neat stuff. I adore that book!!!!

  2. My sweet children once fashioned me a crown,of the aluminum foil sort. They seated me at the kitchen table, then crowned me and gave me all my gifts and a cake they had helped their Daddy bake...A sweet B-day memory!! *wink

    Happy, Happy Birthday, Girl.
    I bet your Mama's proud of you!!

  3. Happy Birthday! Sorry I'm late!

    My husband threw a surprise party for my 40th birthday that rocked my socks off!

  4. Personally, my birthdays always suck. But that's another story.
    I'm so glad yours was great! Happy Birthday, girlfriend!

  5. Sorry to get around to this late but from 1 March baby to another, HAPPY BDAY!

  6. Happy belated birthday! I've been out of town.
