Gratitude

Thank you for those of you who left comments on my blog. This mothering thing is hard, and sometimes I wonder where I went wrong! But it helps to know that my friends have days like that, too. Thank you, Stacey, for the spiritual quote. I'm going to look up his talk today.

So, today I turn 25. I have been DREADING this birthday. I'm not sure why. Maybe because it's halfway to 30? Or because I still feel 18 at heart? And, now I have to mark the "25-30" category when I fill out paperwork? I know, some of you are laughing hysterically because you passed this birthday years ago. And, sometimes I think I'm just being silly for getting myself worked up so much over it. I'll embrace it soon enough.

I'm definitely embracing my relaxing morning: Laci actually slept in past 5 am; in fact, it's almost 8 and she's still sleeping! Jacob played, instead of clinging, at my feet while I worked on my Christmas cards. Jason didn't have to go into work before 6:30 am. These are the perfect birthday gifts!

Happy Birthday!

I totally understand the 25 mark feeling. It was hard for me too. So was 26, 27, and 28 was too busy with newborn stuff to even think about it.

I hope your day is fantastic!
