i’ve had to do the math in my head a few times to make sure of my new age.
yes, thirty five.
this day has been full of brilliant light…starting with it gracing our 7:45 stop at the big kids school.
i have felt carried along by routines and friends. there hasn’t been a moment to wonder what to do. and i know that is a gift. a tremendous gift.
with flowers and donuts and drawings (apparently i am a person with really short black hair…at least i am smiling) and laugh-inducing preschool moments and pizza in the sun and gifts that give me hope and songs sung to me and fire and incense and needing to be in the sunshine to not be cold and chocolate and diet coke with lime and anticipation, i have been reminded of the goodness.
i told a friend recently that what i want out of my relationships (and all of life, really) are reminders of the goodness of god. help me see heaven on earth. i’ve seen it today.
edited to add:
i just did a facebook quiz and found out that my true age is 8. not sure how i feel about that.

Happy happy birthday! It sounds like a wonderful day.
Oh Happy, Happy Birthday! What a wonderful day to be in our state and enjoy such beautiful weather with such a joyous celebration. Enjoy every moment of it! (And I think the True Age Test is wonderful — I think any good preschool teacher and mom should at least have a part of her that feels like she’s still under age ten!)
happy birthday – so glad the sun shined for you!!
and 8 is a wonderful age to be!!
Happy Birthday – I’m “10” years ahead of you – it only gets better!

Happy Birthday — I’m glad it was a wonderful day. What a great thing, to be reminded of the goodness of God in those we have relationships with, and those we don’t.
