It was my birthday yesterday. I'm not really fazed about getting older (just turned 46). Sometimes I get kind of freaked out about it but, I figure there's nothing I can do but, take care of myself the best I can and appreciate the time I've had and the time to come.
I didn't do anything spectacular but, I had a wonderful day. I had lunch with my mom and my son, we went antiquing. I made dinner for my son and his girlfriend and they surpised me with this...
A lovely Black Forest Cake! (It's a terrible picture of me, this is what you look like when you lay around all day!) I thought it was very thoughtful of them to get me a cake. We had the cake and hung out and watched movies. I got a few presents and lots of chocolate. But, I think what made me the happiest was the fact that my son wanted to hang out with me. He's grown to be a very thoughtful, kind and independent person. He is wonderful with his girlfriend, very considerate and responsible. I couldn't have asked for my kid to turn out any better. I thought to myself at the end of the day, "Wow, I did good. I raised a wonderful human being!". If I may say so myself, what a friggin accomplishment!
If I can do that, raise a well adjusted human being, what can't I do? It puts things in perspective. Why should this upcoming move to a different state and starting a new career frighten me? It shouldn't so, I won't let it!
Here is a little Paulina fairy for you....
