sweetest hello

hello thirties.

you welcomed me with such a wonderful, fall weekend of camping.
although i had reservations about going away for my birthday, away as in outside the realm of all communications, once we pulled on to the gravely mountain road - my heart was happy.
my husband is that of perfection; what a wonderful job he did planning.
he is the sweetest, most compassionate, caring person. i love him, completely.
the freating we do over age. it is kind of silly.
i said my prayers & thanked my dear Savior for another day, another year.
but -because i do freat. and i do put big deals on birthdays.
- this is a new beginning for me.
not one tear did i end up shedding the day of my birthday.
i really surprised myself.
i am happy to report i did not spend the day in bed with a gallon of ice cream, bottles of wine and boxes of kleenex - instead, i woke up with such a rejuvenating sense of life.
i was no longer thinking of what i had missed out on or hadn't accomplished.
or of the silly girls who had recently hurt me;
but only what i have to look forward too and the many new things that awaits.
i have so many wonderful and new exciting things coming up in the next few weeks and months.
i plan on making the most of every minute.
i am happy. i am loved. i am blessed.
happy birthday to me.
