BECAUSE it’s my birthday

So…. Yesterday my running partner and very good friend asked me: “Are we still running tomorrow? I mean, it’ll be your birthday” … “Yes, we’re running! BECAUSE it is my birthday!” and that’s the way I see it… I am not saying it’s easy to get out of my warm bed at 5 in the morning when everything is still dark and cold outside but… I think I DESERVE this! Running is good for me… being healthy is a great gift! So… BECAUSE it’s my birthday… I ran this morning! 🙂

And later:


I took the girls to Chick-Fil-A … they gave us each a scoop of ice-cream, a friend from church works there and my oldest told her it’s “mommy’s birthday” so, that’s why the ice-cream! I had to throw mine away (I felt bad but had to be done!)… but the girls enjoyed theirs … and even later…


My goodness! The water was icy cold… I couldn’t believe there were people swimming there two days ago! crazy! I mean… it gets pretty cold at night… and in the day it doesn’t even reach 80 degrees, but the day was too beautiful to be inside the house, the girls enjoyed in the shallow side of the pool while mommy watched them and relaxed…

Have to go now… I have something bugging me in my throat… I think I am catching a cold.. -sigh-

Happy Birthday to ME!

  1. What an awesome gift you gave yourself! But you threw away ice cream? GASP!

    Happy Birthday! Perhaps today would be a great day to tell you how inspired I am that you continue to fight this journey. It’s not an easy one, but you have remained positive and strong through all your setbacks. It makes me happy that you feel you DESERVE to be healthy, so you treat yourself to THAT. You’re doing a wonderful job! 🙂
