Today it is my birthday! Today I changed diapers, cleaned up spills, made lunch, vacuumed, washed dishes, baked cookies with my two year old, danced like a crazy person around my living room trying to get a little smirk out if my teething nine-month old, walked my dogs, left my daughters with a baby sitter, went out on a date with the only man I've ever dated, chatted on the phone with friends and family, and stayed up a little later than normal. I wouldn't change a thing! As I sit here on my borrowed couch(ish) thing next to my $5.00 garage sale purchased Christmas tree, decorated in hand made or gifted decorations, I am mindful of how much I have to be thankful for, to be proud of, to be content with. All too easily discontentment creeps into my heart and makes me lose sight of all these things, these moments, these joys. The reminders are everywhere and I am so thankful that I don't have to look hard to find them! I'm thirty-one. I'm the oldest I've ever been, the youngest I'll ever be again and I'm oh, so very rich in all the ways that matter most!
