Birthday…

Filed under: Just Because — Char @ 9:17 pm

It is truly hard to believe! It really is happening! You know….what the old folks always said! The older you get, the faster time goes! At times, my life feels like it is running on warp speed and I don’t know why! I don’t even know how to slow it down. My concern is that I will wake up tomorrow and I will be 45…in the blink of an eye! And I never saw it coming!

Oh, the brevity of life!

So today, as I turn another year older…I am setting my two feet solidly on the ground and determining in my heart to pay attention to what really matters! To feel the breath come in and out of my lungs, experience the joy in each moment if I only stop and notice, and acknowledge that life is a gift from God. Yes, life is very much bigger than the here and now!

So taday…I am going to list a few things I appreciate about life, love, and just existing!

1. God…because of Him, I live! Because of Him, I exist! Because of Him!

2. Scarves…bright ones, checkered and striped ones, soft and fuzzy ones, mustard yellow ones! Need a face lift?!! Throw on a scarf!

3. Caramel Lattes with whipped cream served in a big mug…need I say more?!!

4. Laughter…good, solid belly laughs. Nothing like the real thing!

5. Soul mates…you know, those people that know you inside and out and still stick by your side!

6. Broken in running shoes and sweats…Whomever introduced the “fashion” world anyway?!! If it had not been for them, this is all we would need to have in our wardrobes!

7. Clean white sheets fresh off the line, on bed at night…delicious!

8. Good morning hugs…warm, sleepy, happy little boys that just rolled out of bed.

9. Chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting…oh, it is the truth! Dessert at it’s absolute finest!

10. All my boys…whether it is sticky smooches from my little boys or a hug from my man, all is right with the world!

11. Ok, I have eleven…new gear! Picked it up last night from the fine folks at Lee’s Camera Center, just in time for my birthday!

“God, This baby is yours! Where you wanna go with it?!! You lead…we will follow! Amen and Amen!”
