It's My Birthday!

I turned 31 today. Birthdays are just not what they used to be. There was no eager anticipation, no studying the calendar...Just another birthday. But what I expected to be just another birthday turned into a fun filled weekend. I had a blast. I celebrated with friends, family and Erik. It was the just the weekend I wanted.

The funniest part....I never opened one present. My girls did and I took so much pleasure in watching them. Oh, how time changes us all. It's now the little things in life that mean so much. No present could take the place of watching Ella and Lucy's excitement as they anticipated my happiness in my gifts. If only they could understand that they are my gifts. My two precious gifts from God.
