|Me at the Tillamook Cheese Factory last week|
Today, my friends, I am 26. I woke up to Olivia saying, "Happy birfday, Mommy!", Bryan changing Olivia's diaper (although I really was getting up to do it) and a hearty chorus of "Happy Birthday" from Bryan and my in-laws. So, ya know, it's already been a pretty fabulous day.
Made more fabulous by getting to clip my nails. I hate having long nails (always have, always will) and I hadn't gotten a chance to sit and clip them in the last couple of weeks, so they were due for a good trimming. As I sat alone in the shade of the grass in my my in-laws' back yard, I couldn't help but feel that clipping my nails, sending the trimmings into the grass, was like spreading the magic of my birthday. Earth fertilized with magic.
I hope the magic soaks in deep and sprouts up wherever you are today. Birthdays are special. I hope your today is special too.
