April is finally here! The month I am declaring my “birthday month”! I decided a long time ago that the best way for me to “birthday” was to take all of the expectations off of the people I love and take care of myself on my birthday. While it may sound selfish, it has actually turned out to be a very good thing.
Growing up, I shared a birthday month with my brother and sister. She always got to hold the cake…
My birthday for as long as I can remember, has been a time when I really, really, in my heart of hearts believe that I am something special. Created and loved by a heavenly Father that knows all about me and still delights in me. I anticipate those times of quiet reflection, on the year past, on the year to come, all that He has in store.
So, I am calling this little celebration, 30 Days of Happy. You can follow along if you’d like. (or not, I totally get it!) I’ll be sharing some of my favorite things.
I am so grateful that Ricky gets it! This morning as I went for my second cup of coffee and this little surprise was waiting on me and inside the card it said “Happy Birthmonth!”. He’s in!
Who knows? You might decide to throw yourself a party!
