One more day until my birthday, well actually just a couple hours. I am sitting in my birthday dress after having gone out to dinner with Sonia, one of my best friends and a true blessing. There are times when I forget to count them. This week, they have been coming to me; making sure that I know that I am loved.
Last night, I cooked dinner for three of my dear friends. I loved being able share my bounty with them. The look on Ashmarie’s face when I told her that I would make her more sweet potato fries. Even better was the look when I told her that I was going to make a chocolate cake.
She is just a lovely soul. Her daughter, Carly, only nine days old is so very lucky to have her as a mother. And I am so fortunate to have her and Mr. H, her partner, as friends.
Blessings surround me, I know it and I am so very grateful. That is the lesson from this birthday challenge and celebration. I am blessed..no matter what is going on in my life or how much money is in the bank, I am still blessed. My family and friends are the greatest gifts in my life.
Pure and simply. They aren’t perfect, but they are mine. They love me and I love them.
