another year older and what do you get?

if i were to describe the exact details of this birthday it would sound sort of, well, less than average. i woke, i worked, i ate, and now i sit. my husband is out of town and my plans for the evening took a nosedive.

all that being said, i have to say this is one of the best birthdays i've ever had. why? because i'm happy. i'm happy with my life, my marriage, my kid, my bonus kids, my house, my job, the whole shebang. when in my life have i really been able to say all those things at once?

on the surface i'm definitely in a seasonal-affective-disorder-type of funk, but deep down inside? where it really counts? it's evident that i'm a very lucky girl.

i woke to kisses and birthday greetings of my babe and husband. i was given sweet and special tokens by my friends at work and many well-wishes from friends further away. in a way i'm even glad my plans for the evening tanked because i got to sit with b and read and watch him keep perfect time on the piano, playing a duet with my mom. he's only 22 months! he's amazing! and i get to be a part of it.

so maybe this is my thanksgiving post early moreso than a reflection on my birthday. at any rate, i'm not going to apologize for it. it's right to be thankful, to appreciate what you got.
