They say wisdom comes with age. I don't know if I have gained any of that, but I do know I have gained some lbs, responsibilities, wrinkles, and of course cellulite. After a very tough year, I pray that this year is filled with the best of health for myself and my family members. I pray that this year brings me new level of patience and an appreciation for every little thing in life. I am blessed to have lots of love around me and I hope to give it all back.
As I am typing this, my 5 year old approaches me and sits next to me to see what I am doing. In my excitement I say to her, "its mommy's birthday today". Her reply, "mommy when is grandma and Mani auntie giving me my birthday present". What a great reminder of telling myself that as a mom, its no longer about me!
