I had such a great birthday! It was not the gifts and what I did, but a general feeling of being happy and contend with where I am and what I am doing with my life. And being absolutely soaked (the only way I can describe it) in the love of my family and friends. I am so blessed! Thanks also for all your kind wishes.
Some highlights from my actual birthday:
My hubby woke we up with lovely tanzanite solitaire earrings to match my necklace that he gave me last year (a cross). The Little Miss appeared soon after with a lovely book from the kids. I had to rush to a site to solve a crises but took cake to the office after wards. The intention was not to work on the day, but I a m glad I spent some time with the kids at the office.
These two did a little Happy Birthday song and dance for me. And gave me the soundtrack to Mamma Mia!
I met my mom and The Little Miss for lunch at a little local restaurant with a play area. With my gift my mom gave me a letter that she wrote for me of my life thus far through her eyes. What an absolutely priceless gift! I have decided to start doing this immediately for my kids.

A fun way to practice patterns
Then I gave myself the best birthday gift any mom can receive - a 2 hour nap! An absolute luxury in my life!
The evening the Ever so charming and delightful hubby took me to see the new Bond movie ( yes, I am a Bond fan and love Daniel Craig) and dinner after at one of our favorite restaurants. A thunder storm broke out while we were eating on the verandah and that was to me a perfect end to my special day.
Oh yes, and I had another gift - we have a walker! Little man C is taking 2 to 3 steps at a time and gaining confidence by the day.
Today I am thankful for my happy life, my family and my friends. God has been incredibly good to me. I am truly blessed.
