Thank you all for the special birthday wishes and goodies yesterday. Y’all have NO IDEA how much they meant to me.
Truly special. Aside from the birthday posts on social media and the messages and texts I received, my birthday was not good. In fact, it was one of the worst birthdays I can remember.
I had wanted to blog about what a disaster my day was but then I thought why put more energy into detailing all the things that occurred (and didn’t occur)? Why focus on the bad? Nothing will change how my day unfolded. There are no do-overs. All I can do is go forward from today.
I CAN think about the positive things; I enjoyed a Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha-with raspberry and whipped cream. My favorite. I had a nice meal and my husband is taking me to my favorite restaurant tonight. My sweet daughter bought me a pretty pen with her own money. I had a good workout and ran 1 mile on the treadmill. My husband and youngest daughter made super sweet posts on my Facebook. My husband had sent me roses and chocolate the day before for my Bday and Valentines combined.
I’m alive and I am healthy. I have been blessed with another year. These are all good things I can take away from my day. All of these things override the BS (sorry- there is no other descriptive that works here).
Oh, and I also did do a little thing. I pulled a dress out of my closet that I bought not too long ago. I didn’t try it on at the store first, but I loved the fabric and print and cut. I decided to try it on yesterday. I was taking a gamble. It could have made my day even worse (LOL), but I was actually very pleasantly surprised. At that moment, I felt really pretty. I decided this would be THE dress for my trip to Singapore in a few weeks. I was so glad I decided to try it on.
Oh, and by the way, I found out at midnight last night when my husband got home that the trip to Singapore will more than likely be cancelled due to the Coronavirus. And that was the nightcap to my birthday. Boo!
Thank you again for your kind wishes. They are what made my day.
52 will be an awesome year even though it did not start off so great! There are 364 more days to celebrate. Starting today!!
