Happy birthday to Meeeee.
Happy birthday to me! ♪♪
Gone are the days of my youth.
Gone are the kiddie parties, the stash of presents, the cakes, cupcakes and junk food. Gone are the girlfriend sleepovers and the boy-girl parties.
Today, I celebrate my 42nd birthday and I’m not embarrassed or ashamed to say it. Although I miss the days of old, I wouldn’t trade my birthdays of today for a minute of what once was.
As a Mother of three, I now celebrate my special day in a very different way. The presents are little, the party is quaint, the dinner and dessert are always my choice . The part I love most about the entire special day is the excitement that overflows from my sweet girls as they unravel the surprises they have to share with me. All the planning in secret, all the cards they make by hand to the song they sing before me as they hug and hold my hand.
They shower me with love.
Make me feel special in every way.
There’s no other gift they could give me.
I love them like crazy, you see.
I’m a birthday girl today and I’m celebrating another year of good health, happiness and love with the people who mean the most to me.
♥ My little family ♥.
I couldn’t imagine it any other way.
