Today 16 = 61. Not sure if that makes it some kind of special birthday but I’ve been around long enough to think they are all pretty special. This one didn’t have all the pizazz of last year’s big 60 did but that’s ok. This quieter version was just fine. It was a day to rebalance, reflect and cherish.
Strangely enough there was a beautiful sunrise and a stunning sunset but no sunshine in-between. When it’s this cold it’s usually sunny. That wind today was no one’s friend that’s for sure.
It didn’t stop us from a lunch date with friends, old and young. It’s always nice to connect.
The afternoon was Nan and the Little’s time as momma had other things to do. Which is ok as we love this one on one time although by the time it’s done I’m tired. We topped it off with a family supper and a fab dark chocolate cake made by my daughter.
It’s not often that the words just don’t flow but somehow that is tonight’s issue. I can’t seem to express how much this family time meant. Watching hockey, while the dogs, children and uncle all play. Bath time to the sound of dishes being done. The ebb and flow of family life. It fills my heart to the brim and makes me realize how incredibly blessed I am.
