My heart was filled to overflowing yesterday as I celebrated and was celebrated and moved through the day.
From overseas phone calls and visits from friends to texts and postings on facebook to partying with my youngest, it was a full, full day.
My oldest son came home for the weekend. I pulled up next to child three in her car to chat through an open window at a stoplight. A friend was driving through town with her children and hung out at the house for an hour during Little Mae’s party.
So much love.
I received a private message on facebook from a former preschool student who is now a mommy. It melted my heart and put tears in my eyes.
My baby sister wrote words in my honor. Go ahead. Read them here.
Steve got me a strawberry charm for my Pandora bracelet to celebrate this.
They know me pretty well.
My parents fed the kids dinner at their house.
Steve and I met Caleb at the hospital to hang out with our friend who battles Leukemia and sing for awhile. Caleb played guitar. I couldn’t have orchestrated a better birthday party. We laughed. We cried. We were quiet. We sang. We celebrated friendship and hope and possibilities and what is now.
My luvvah and I walked downtown for dinner and ate and talked and laughed and reflected.
Big brother put little siblings to bed.
I ended the day with an overflowing heart and the realization that I am a blessed woman. Thank you to everyone who made the day, and who make every day, special.
