In the past few weeks, I have been willing Spring to come our way. We've had spurts of warm yet breezy weather over the last few days -- including my wonderful birthday / early Easter weekend -- but it seems as if winter weather may be rearing it's head again. So while it may be turning frigid again for the moment outdoors, it's still springtime inside my home with beautiful ranunculus and hyacinths.

I often wonder if I'm alone in cherishing my birthday as much as I do. Everyone enjoys attention and gifts, but it's much less a about that for me. Each year, I take time to reflect on how blessed I am to be here in this world and how much I appreciate my life and my family. It's become even more poignant with the loss of my grandfather this year. Yesterday was a milestone birthday for a couple reasons -- not only my age -- it was the first year I did not hear "Happy Birthday, Baby!" live from my grandfather's voice. I do, however, continue to replay it in my head. And, that, along with all the other blessings God has bestowed on me -- great husband, cute dog, supportive family -- has made this the best birthday yet. I'm growing, and I love it.
All the best!
