My youngest made me a scavenger hunt, to find a vase that she had painted for me.
Hubby also gave me some pretty flowers.
My 41st year was such a blessing and brought so many unexpected life lessons and adventures. (did I mention that I have grown devoted to my readers. Reading glasses that is. Sigh! Confession time: I broke down & bought a cute glass chain/necklace to help me keep up with them around the house) (sigh! Not all change seems good but it keeps me humble and gives me something to giggle at)
Here's a card one of my friends gave me. (can you tell that we are pool friends)
I am excited to see what I learn and how I grow in my 42nd year. I hope that I grow more self disciplined as well as learn to extend myself grace. I want to laugh when things are funny, cry when things are sad and learn not to care so much about what "others" think, to enjoy the freedom in learning to only be concerned about pleasing God.
Do you like birthday's? Do you celebrate your birthday or do you cringe inside? Do you become more reflective as you become older? More thankful? Or more depressed? Do you have any birthday celebration rituals? I would love to know your views on birthdays! Please leave me a comment!!
