I'm thankful

All right I was trying to get in a blogging groove but its proving harder then I thought. I thought while I was down at my parents I'd get caught up but lets face it, with three small kids there is always something going on. Or rather someone is always getting into something and at night, well, I'm just pooped. But I do still have a giveaway to do I just need to get a picture of it. So any day.

But today is a special day. Today, 29 years ago, I graced the world with my presences.

After giving birth three times I feel like I should really thank my mother, cripes this day should be more about her then me. Perhaps I should get her some flowers.

Birthdays are great fun after all its a day about you. Well you and everyone else born on that day. And lucky me I get to share today with my very best friend. How many of you all are lucky enough to have a very best friend born the same day as you?

Not many I'm guessing, we're special like that.

Today is going to be a fun day. I wish flyboy were around but he hasn't been home for a birthday since I was 18 so why should the Marine Corps cooperate now? But I have the rest of my posse with me and we shall have fun today.

I know some people get bummed out about their birthdays but I'm not going too. So what I'm getting older? Sure beats the alternative.

Rather then lamenting about being a year older I'm thankful.

Thankful for my fantastic husband, our strong marriage, our amazing boys who are not just smart but delightful little beings.

I'm thankful for being blessed with another year to spend with my family, to get the chance to grow as a better wife and to help guide my children thru their life.

I am thankful for my littlest one and for the peace that he brings to our bunch and for the calm that his breath brings to my heart.

I am thankful that while my days might be filled with poop and spit up that they are also filled with big hugs, little wet kisses, lots of "I love you's" and the best part of the day, bedtime. I am very thankful for bedtime.

I am thankful for my friends, I don't have a whole lot but the ones I have are fantastic and so are my friends in the blog world, and strange as it may seem I consider many of you guys friends.

And now, I must take my thankfulness and go feed my littlest one.

Have a great day everyone, I know I will!

And to my dear penny, HAPPY 29!

  20. Happy Birthday! I guess I figured you were a lot older than me since you have 3 kids and all my friends are a lot older than me (I have an old soul apparently). But yeah, you are just half a year older than I...

    In any case...Happy Birthday, hope the Dashes were good to you!
