Why My Birthday Was Awesome

Things that happened yesterday, on my birthday:

 

  • I pulled something in my left thumb, while saving Jacob from harm in a situation I can’t even remember.

 

  • I got my first bee sting.

 

  • My favorite pair of sandals broke.

 

And yet, my day was awesome.

 

First, because I need my right thumb for knitting more than I need my left.

 

Second, because my severely allergic child requires my having Cortisone on hand at all times. That stuff is a dream.

 

Third, because I’ve been seeing the shoe situation coming for weeks, and it gives me license to seriously shoe-shop.

 

But most of all, because while spending time on facebook reading birthday messages yesterday I learned of a wedding, an engagement, and a great business school admission. Plus I got an email telling me another friend had eloped and was now married!

 

I had such a good time celebrating my birthday this weekend that I didn’t think I needed anything more yesterday. But good news is always something I could use more of.

 

Although this calendar year started out with a lot of bad news, this birthday year is beginning with a whole lot of good, which is certainly something to celebrate!
