The past two days have been such a whirlwind… my head is still spending! Friday night out with my adult family just made me happy. It gets harder and harder it seems these days to gather and especially alone where we can all concentrate on what each other of us is saying! So many funny stories. Great meal, birthday dessert and a quick look at the hidden romantic life of downtown Charleston that Kaitlyn and I were taken to by Walsh.
As I think back on all my trips around the sun… no two have ever been the same. Good times or bad… life is constantly changing and surprising us… it never stays the same for long. This inherent truth many of us fight against to the end… but truth always wins in the end and accepting change for what it is ( as hard as that is) opens us up to opportunities and possibilities we would never have discovered left to our own wants.
After my birthday dinner came Jake’s party -Saturday morning…it was a bouncing success!
Jake turned eight this year and Boo didn’t… but I hopefully turned more life lessons lived and learned into becoming an improved version of the ‘ happy to be alive’ me!
And thank goodness for my new Clemson sweatshirt… I think the Tigers decided to give me a surprise birthday party present… and waited to the last ” second” to give it to me! ( In overtime) A Win! Great gift!!!!
So until tomorrow… I am completely overwhelmed by all the love I have felt on my birthday… cards, well wishes, gifts, calls, texts and flowers… I am the luckiest woman in the world to feel such love around me! Thank and Bless each of you!!!
