a happy birthday :D

When I had my cancer scare a couple months ago, something became very clear to me. It wasn't just a passing thought or a cliche thing to say. The words have become written on my heart: Life is Precious.

It truly, truly is. And because this has never rang more clear to me I feel extra blessed to have celebrated another year of life here on this Earth. Tomorrow is not promised to us and only He knows the number of our days, but I am so thankful for every breathe I take.

My husband (who is normally not a big 'birthday' person) and our boys went above and beyond to make this day extra special.

Thank you Billy, Colby, Micah...and even you Isaac :) And thank you to all who wrote and wished me a happy birthday! Every comment was so sweet, I appreciate you all!

Billy let me sleep in (yeah) and when I woke up he had decorated the table: setting out a table cloth, he had bought party plates/napkins/forks, tied balloons to all the chairs, bought a chocolate buttercream cake infused with bailey's irish cream and caramel temptation (yum!). He also had these cute little mexican paper flag banners hanging from the ceiling that he had hand cut himself! Did I marry a good man or what?

He and the boys made me birthday cards and he stocked our fridge with Mexican coke in the glass bottles, my favorite. My mom kept the boys for us so we could have dinner alone and thanks to my sweet men, I am now am the proud owner of this. I have wanted it ever since Isaac was born...my 3 boys are my 3 rocks so it has special meaning to me.

Now I'm off to watch Slumdog Millionaire. I have wanted to see it forever, just never got around to it! What a great day!
