Today is my birthday, and I have so much to celebrate!!!!
But I have had the hardest time figuring out how I’d like to spend this special day. For some reason, I don’t want to be pampered. I know, call me crazy. I’m sure it’s only temporary.
My family and co-workers can’t figure me out. They know I usually love the excuse to celebrate and enjoy a few of my favorite things like a manicure/pedicure, lunch with friends and a fun movie, maybe a little shopping and dinner out with my family.
This year I just want a simple day with Jesus. I’ll probably watch my next Beth Moore video download in her Esther series (that’s what I’ve been studying these days), and do some writing in my favorite spot. I’ll read and journal while I sip on my favorite coffee drink – sugar free vanilla iced coffee from McDonalds. I’ll end the day with dinner at home with my kids, JJ and mom (she’s doing the cooking). Sounds pretty wonderful to me!
I was telling JJ last night that I think I’m feeling the way I am because I have been surrounded by so much love, friendship, encouragement and prayers these past few weeks that I am all filled up!!! And I thank many of you for that!
So, instead of getting a few of my favorite things, I am going to give them away!!! You could be part of the celebration by sharing with me how you’d like to spend your birthday and….
