Today is my 25th birthday.
I love my birthday. I like to imagine that every year on my birthday that the world runs a little smoother, the birds sing a little happier, police don't give out speeding tickets, and no child goes to bed hungry. While unlikely - since it's my birthday so I can wishful think all I want to.
At first I was apprehensive about this birthday because (as my dear sweet husband put it) "25 is a quarter of a century old". But I dumped that train of thought and started the birthday festivities early with a long hot bath, freshly painted toenails, & ready to conquer
I have so much to be thankful for on this day. Of course my life isn't perfect, but it's filling, it's purposeful, it's full of love.
Happy Birthday to me!
