|Me & my 2009 Arnie's birthday cake|
When I celebrate my birthday each year, I think about my Mom. This is not just because my birthday sometimes falls on Mother's Day (or only days different). Giving birth to my first child opened my eyes to how special that day can be for a mother. My heart fills with pure joy when my boys' birthdays occur each year.
Last year, I hit a very big milestone in my life (not the only one of the year). I hit the big 3-0! If you remember correctly, Mother's Day fell on May 10th last year, so I shared my day with all of the other moms in this world. My celebration, with my Mom, husband, and boys, was quiet and special. Those that remembered my day made it even more cherished.
Today, I will party like a rock star as I turn 30 again! Okay. Fine. I won't party like a rock star. I'll have another peaceful and blessed birthday, unless my husband and boys have been hiding something really big. Admitting that I'm getting older shouldn't be a big deal either. People still mistake me for a teenager on a regular basis.
How do/did you celebrate Mother's Day? Birthdays? Do you have special traditions with Mom? Are birthday traditions different for yourself, your spouse, your kids?
Happy Mother's Day to all of my Mom readers... especially my Mom!
This week is full of celebrations! Just to name a few: Mother's Day, my birthday, & of course my 1 year Blogger-versary!!! Would you like to celebrate with me once again on Wednesday? Will there be prizes you ask? Of course there will be! What's a celebration without presents?
Oh, and don't think I'm going to forget this past weekend...
*** HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MARYBETH!!! ***
