Birthdays are Beautiful
•The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
•The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
•The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows.
Today is the day one beautiful woman propelled me into the world via sheer force, sweat and fears. Amazing to me I have lived this long. Seriously when I was in my 20's I just knew I wouldn't make it to 50. And here I am 3 years away. A full grown beautiful woman who has finally found unconditional love from a man (granted he is only four and thats going to totally change, but... hey!).
It took me many years to appreciate being a woman. Many years. I think I have found that at the age of 47, maybe it took me being a mom to realize the complete power of being a woman. That beauty really does come from within (although, it doesn't hurt to be pretty on the outside). I woke up this morning like every other day, wishing I didn't have to work for a living! But grateful for what I have, especially the little man, who was fixing my hair before work today. Another year of fighting the fight, and winning the little battles.
Tonights booming celebration? Me and the midgie are going to make birthday cake. So whats your preference.. Lemon Cake with Lemon Icing OR Golden Cake with Dark Chocolate Icing?
Let your voice be heard. I will take a cake porn picture after its done.
Happy Birthday to me.
I am as old as a tree
I smell like fresh flowers
and I live by the sea.
