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!
