Yesterday I woke up not feeling any different than any other day like usual on someone’s birthday. Funny thing is most people including myself always seem to ask that very question, do you feel any different on your birthday? Fact is, for me, no I didn’t. I know in days to come, when certain people ask how old I am, I will probably stumble over my words because the reality hasn’t sunken in that I am 34 instead of 33. My body doesn’t feel different, I mean I didn’t just wake up overnight and have a head full of gray hair and a hump in my back and lose all of my teeth. I’m just me and I’m a firm believer that YOU make your day a success, not the other way around that YOUR day makes you. Every time I wish someone happy birthday I tell them to make it a good day, and that’s what I set out to do for myself.
My hubby turned to me and kissed me and said happy birthday before we even got out of bed. After I stepped out of my shower for the morning my hubby gave me a gift of a Viking’s locker to store down in our game/football/TV room, where I can store my jersey and baseball cap during the season. What a lovely thought, seeing as though he is a die-hard Cowboy’s fan and anything else brought into that room could jinx their entire season. So this locker speaks volumes of love.
Then from there I headed home because my sister was sending me two pizza hut pizzas with a lava chocolate dessert on the side to be delivered around the same time I expected to be home. How lovely, all she had to do was go online and place the order all the way from where she lives in Minnesota. Isn’t technology grand?? Aren’t sister’s grand??
All in all, turning another year older just proves to me that your birthday is only as important as the attitude you set before it.
Aside from going to my kids’ softball practice and taking a walk with my hubby, we all just came home to relax for the evening.
