29 And Holding


So, here it is again - my birthday. I am still 29 and holding. Or at least I am claiming to be! I am actually going to be 37.

My girls wanted to throw me a Sponge Bob birthday, but I opted for a barbecue at my Mom's house with some much needed relaxation.

This year has been full of struggles so, I find myself more grateful than ever for my beautiful family, my loving and supportive husband and for the simple fact that we have everything we need.

When I get to blow the candles of my cake out this year, my wish is simple. I wish for enough.

"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Goodbye."

  7. At some point, even the anniversary candles threaten to burn the house down.

    I've moved on to 39, just for the sake of fire safety.

  8. May you have a Blessed birthday! Jack Benny stayed 39 for about 30 years. Maybe longer. Never lose your sense of humor.
