Today was my birthday!! I’m 33 years old today and while no one has asked me if I feel any older, my neck and back pain can answer that question for me!

Just getting settled in after returning home from some awesome dinner with my family (Olive Garden awesomeness including White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake). My kiddo is sitting on my bed doing her homework. We have the new WoodWick candle in Tradewinds scent burning/crackling on the desk and I’m so full I have had to take my belt off and unbutton my top bottom on my jeans. UGH!

Today was also my 11th anniversary at work, so it was nice to get several happy birthday/anniversary/anniverthday wishes which is always nice. One of my coworkers asked me what I had planned for the evening and I told her dinner out. To me, that’s a gift for three reasons:

1. I get to spend time with my family and my mom;
2. I don’t have to clean up the kitchen afterwards;
3. Because it’s my birthday, I get to have two desserts to share with everyone at the table and no one can do a damn thing about it! LOL

Sometimes, it’s the little things that matter, like dinner with family which is as much of a gift as the digital photo frame I received. This brings me to today’s Bible passage I get on my phone:

“Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” –

Amen to that! Sometimes it’s necessary to be reminded what you have and how important it is to be thankful for those thing. Thanks to everyone who wished me birthday wishes, and if you’re birthday is today – happy birthday! Aunt Bubba
