Today, my hubby has reached a major milestone: the top of a hill most archeologists would date back to 25 years ago. But to me, it’s not a hill: it’s a pedestal.
Happy birthday, B. The “butter to my bread, the breath to my life.” My partner in crime. Thank you for you: for saving me from vicious spiders, for eating my terrible cooking with a smile, for lending me your patience when I’ve none left, for being the most awesome father to our two boys, and keeping laughter alive in our house.

Spending my birthday heavily medicated from a stupid kidney stone is not the best way to celebrate. But at the same time, I can’t complain. No whining allowed.
Because I have the most incredible family.
Yes, folks, this is a bragging post. Fair warning.
My mother, who made us dinner because she knew I couldn’t cook. My father, who picked my son up from school 2 days in a row and took him to his appointments. My brother, who came over to watch my younger son since I was totally loopy. Even my 5-year-old, who didn’t understand what was going on, but still covered me with a blanket and shared his toys with me so it would make me feel better. (Made me want to cry, it was so cute!)
And especially my hubby. For any single ladies out there who are still looking for the right man, make sure you marry one just like mine (sorry, you can’t have this one!). The kind of man who stands beside you when the shit hits the fan, and is helping you scrape all of it off the ceiling and walls. More importantly, will take the scraper from you when you’re flat on your back in a hospital bed, and keep scraping for you. Who sits beside you when you feel you’re at your worst, holds your hand and tells you he loves you.
I would be ecstatic not to see a hospital room again this year. They should put a plaque with my name on one of those rooms by now. But I know if I am, he’ll be right there with me. Telling me I’m still beautiful. And smiling through whatever nonsense I say while on morphine. (Apparently I asked him 3 times if he went to the dry cleaners).
I have the best family in the world. And that’s an awesome birthday. And every other day in between!

Should be a good day. 🙂
Normally I wouldn’t broadcast my birthday on a blog like this, but there’s a lot of reflection on this particular one.
And I wake up thinking 3 things, all of which are equally important to me:
I remember how blessed I am to have lived my life with such love, happiness, and support.
I pray my son lives to see this age, and well beyond it, with the same love, happiness and support.
I pray God grants me another 30 years of more love, happiness and support – and beyond.
Have a great day, everyone.
