Birthday Wishes

October 30th, 2008 Posted in gratitude, received

Today on my birthday, I have a lot to be grateful for this year. This is the first birthday I am spending as a mother. It’s my greatest present from the universe — ever. I am so grateful and so happy to have our little girl, it is unbelievable. Dave asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday — go out to dinner and a movie, or into town, or stay home. I told him, almost immediately, that I wanted to stay home and just spend time with him and the baby without having to worry about work, chores, or doing “things” around the house. I’d also like some of my favorite meals and maybe an afternoon nap. Afternoon naps are so under-rated. I think they should be required by law.

I can’t imagine spending my birthday away from Lily Bean. Sometimes I leave the house because I have to go to work, or run some quick errands. On my birthday, when I can do anything I want, I want to be exactly where I am — at home, close to her, enjoying her smiles and giggles and love. I want to be at home, with my adoring husband, who loves me and is still my best friend. Who has been there for me through thick and thin, through my crazy moments and my awesome moments. I want to be right here where I am, with people I love most and who love me most.

Can’t ask for a better birthday, really. I don’t need anything else in this world (besides the necessary food and shelter and sex stuff), not even alli pills or anything. This is exactly where I want to be.
