Cake and Ice Cream Kind of Day



As long as I can remember I've always loved my birthday.

Today I will do what I was born to do.

I'll drink coffee, wake up the kids, take them to the dentist. I'll silently pray for them in the waiting room while they have teeth pulled (The Boy), and a cavity filled (The Girl).

I'll run errands, have lunch with a friend (she is making one of my favorite soups!), eat chocolate mousse cake, open gifts from the kids, and cards from my friends.

I'll make a quiet dinner, tuck the kids into bed, and have some couch time with The Mister.

I'll crawl into my four poster bed, lay my head down and be satisfied.

I thank God for another ordinary day in an extraordinary life! I couldn't ask for more.

I hope it's special from tip to toe.

Apparently, my b'day present came early--I made a new, incredible, soul sister friend this year.

After coming here to wish you a happy b'day, I stopped over at Whimzie's, and she told me to encourage you to open that Etsy shop. So I am. Because it's always best to do what Whimzie says.

And truly? YOU'RE FANTASTIC, and so very, very talented. Keep us posted. :)

Gosh, my second bloggy friend ever is having a birthday...

From the minute we "met" I felt a very special kinship to you.

I loved Whimzie's post and I agree that you are wise beyond your years and there's something about my talks with you that I always walk away feeling loved and refreshed and happy...because your friendship soothes me and adds a quality I didn't even know I was missing...

Our time is coming to meet in real life...I just know it.

I hope your day makes YOU feel the love, friendship, joy and happiness that you so greatly bestow on all of us...love you!
