Sometimes I even get treated to a birthday-week or a birthday-month. But for several reasons, 2009 felt like a birthday-year.
January 2009 - I enjoyed a cupcake & free Disney admission
in my t-shirt that said "I turned 35 at Disney World!"
Forgive me for repeating myself (I am the Birthday Girl, by the way,) but I got to open many "presents" this past year:
- New friends
- A new church
- A new body (thanks to weight loss)
- New activities (exercise, running, Bunco, my vegetable garden)
- A Kindergartener (and my new schedule)
- Mom's recovery from brain surgery
There's no need to declare my birthday a national holiday. Life itself is gift enough.
