happy birthday to me

today is my birthday and i am older.

my children all woke me up with kisses and singing and promises to clean their rooms tonight "all by themselves" as my present. which actually a clean house is the best present i think any mother could ever get.

my husband woke me with kisses, snuggling, and a promise to eventually celebrate my birthday some time this week between basketball games, one-act play practice, music practice, church, and friends graduating from college as well as my sister and bro-in-law coming in for a visit.

it's busy but it's my life. we actually went out for drinks and appetizers friday night together and celebrated a smidge which was quite nice. i like hanging out with mr. mccurdy all by myself. he's cute and really sweet :)

i thought about pondering my birthday for a few minutes, but honestly my life is too busy right now to even think for a minute about how much time has passed, i'm way to focused on the future.


i think that's a good thing, maybe a sign of maturity. who knows? i still need to lose 35 pounds, i still need to clean out all the closets again, i still need to be more consistent in my daily devotions, i still need to be more patient, i still need to be more kind. looks like i've got another year to shoot for those things again.

life is good, even at its most hurried extreme pace it's good.

life is for the living and i'm living my life the best i can with no real complaints along with five incredibly beautiful children and one wonderfully perfect for me husband.


blessings and christmas cheer,

SWEET! Happy Birthday! That is a very cute picture of you. A clean house is super nice. I would like a more organized one too. It seems like I never know what I have, so when I go shopping (especially grocery shopping) I automatically buy something I already have and forget to buy the thing that's really missing. Your kids sound like they were really sweet for your birthday. Relax! And thanks for the post.

Happy Birthday Big Sister. I am glad you day was good and I hope the kids actually cleaned their room. Can't wait to see you in two and a half days. Looking forward to some holiday cheer and family. Love you!!
