Happy Birthday to me! Guess who was a bit of a grump on her birthday? Annie woke up at 3ish and decided to party for about 45 mins. At that point there was no going back to sleep. I do not function well without enough sleep. I typically do not feel older on my birthdays but yesterday kicked my tail! Good news is that I had an amazing day and now I am fully rested and back to feeling 34 or 24, whatever. (Definitely not 24!)
I started the morning out in The Word but Jesus was talking in Matthew about the end times and let’s just say He was not being encouraging. And did I mention I was in a grumpy mood? I gave up and enjoyed my donut and coffee.
All I really wanted to do when I got home was crawl in the bed, but the cowboy had planned a surprise date night (babysitter and all). I threw on a little more hairspray, lip gloss, changed my shirt and we were off. It was fun and relaxing and perfect.
You know when you get something on your mind and you can’t get it off? All I really wanted for my birthday was sea salt caramel gelato. So, we had dessert on the road. I will say we got a little lost trying to find a Publix near the restaurant. The Cowboy drives a tractor MUCH better than a car and has terrible road
rage frustration. Just to be clear, he doesn’t make an exception for my birthday. I just sat there in my seat, eating my gelato like it was my birthday and I was all that mattered.
I’m not really sure where I thought I would be at the beginning of my 35th year, but I’m glad I’m here. I’m not anywhere near where I want to be and for that I really am thankful, stressed at times, but thankful. Thankful because it’s not over, there is room to grow and where I am now is a-ok with me.
