Blessed Birthday

Another Birthday Slice

It’s late again so I will leave just a small slice tonight, but if it was a slice of cake it would be a slice filled with frosting. I head to bed tonight with a smile on my face. Today I celebrated another birthday enriched by the wishes and kind thoughts from friends and family. It seems like yesterday that I was writing a birthday slice. The speed of life accelerated when our children were born and the years continue to fly by even now that they are grown. But oh how blessed we are that they are here in town to brighten our days and create memories together. Our celebrations have changed. Now we choose a favorite restaurant and gather there for dinner. When little ones are once again part of the group we may go back to gathering around the kitchen table. Going out to dinner and being with my family are surely among my favorite things, but truly it is who we have surrounding us with love that matters, not where we are. Cheers to birthdays and loved ones to share them with.
