So, today is my birthday. . .I'm 45. I don't get hung up on age, or at least the number associated with my age. I try to think more about how do I feel? How am I doing with life in general? Am I a good person? Am I kind and loving and generous to others? Well, because my birthday comes at almost the exact mid point of the year, I am afforded the opportunity to do a review of myself at six month intervals. It's nice in the sense that if I feel I am going off track somewhere, I can redirect without causing too much damage! I hope. . .
Anyway, I feel very fortunate this year because there is so much to celebrate and be thankful for: I have a wonderful husband; I now have the most precious and loving son!; We have awesome and loving families who are so caring and supportive of us; We live in a beautiful home in a beautiful town; we are healthy; and we're able to pay our bills timely and still have some fun! What more could a girl ask for?
I do try to be helpful to others, but I know I could do better at that. . .We are tithing at church, but I could give more of my time (I used to give a lot of time. . .). I could be more patient with Aidan when he gets whiny for no reason.
So, some things to work on during the ocming months.
Today I am getting off work a little early and then we, the three of us, are going down to Manassas to the Social Security Administration to order Aidan's Social Security Card in person. I just didn't want to send his birth certificate, our adoption decree and his passport through the mail! After that, we're heading back to Herndon to meet with Pat's parents for dinner tonight at a place called Sweetwater. Yum! Can't wait.
So, now I'm off to begin my day. . .Aidan is home with Pat today so maybe I'll be able to treat myself to a Starbucks coffee! A little birthday present for me. . .
