MY 43rd BIRTHDAY
A couple of weeks ago, my 43rd Birthday arrived. 43. 43!!! When did I get to be 43? I don't feel like 43. I feel more like ... 23! But at 23, I had been 2 years married and it wouldn't be until another 7 years before my first baby came along. I was so young and didn't even know of the blessings that were ahead of me.
Hubby often brings me flowers for my birthdays, but he knew that I had a desire to have them DELIVERED to me as a surprise. Well, look what was delivered to me from our local florist! It was such a wonderful surprise.
My daughter bought me some flowers, too. She knew that I liked tulips and that my favorite color was fuschia, and she found these for me. We put them in a vase, and I really enjoyed looking at them. Unfortunately, after her daddy's flowers arrived, she really worried that I didn't like hers as much! Awww! I tried to assure her that I loved them both and hers were just as special to me as the larger arrangement. I loved the simple elegance of my tulips. They're so calm and serene next to the busy-ness of the larger arrangement.
Overall, I had a wonderful birthday. The flowers were so beautiful, and I was able to just relax and enjoy the day. Not a bad way to mull over how 20 years had passed so quickly!
