In yesteryears I would have worried and fretted about being a year older. I would have neared panick wondering if I’ve accomplished all of the things in life I should have. Now I just laugh and pour myself a glass of wine;)
If I have lines around my eyes it’s because I smile a lot.
Today I got my very favorite card ever. Sofia dictated to Daddy what was to be on it. It now hangs on my wall next to my bed. Apparently she specified that Darth Vader should look angry, and she signed her own name:)
This morning, when she realized I didn’t get one she started crying. But I realized something as I sat on the floor and pulled her into my lap to hug away her tears. I think I was wrong that she wanted a toy to play with. I think she wanted it for me because, in her mind, that was the very best thing she could give me.
When I realized that, it tugged at my heart so hard. I have such an amazingly sweet and badass kid!
Tonight I am watching shows with Hubs, drinking wine, and eating chocolate.
Not too shabby:)
I’m ready to start another journey around the sun.
