June 10


June 10 is a special day that Hubby and I share: it's our birthday! What are the odds of marrying someone with the same birthday as you? It's like Christmas when we exchange gifts. In fact, our kids think that all mommies and daddies share a birthday.

This birthday I am thankful that my mom is making progress after her life-threatning illness. I'm sitting with her in the hospital and she's having a much better day. In fact, she said she was glad it wasn't 37 years ago, since it was a hard labor. Thanks, Mom. While she may be a little confused at times due to the stroke, she certainly didn't forget my age. Great.

So, before heading to the hospital, I stopped by Starbuck's with my birthday gift card, treated myself to a Grande Mommy Crack, a.k.a., medium coffee with low fat milk, and went on my way. The sun is out, Mom is improving and a beach vacation is on the horizon. That makes for a darn good birthday in my book.

Happy Thursday, everyone!
