I’ve recently seen a few comments on social media from others saying they are tired of seeing “#blessed” on various posts…well to any of you reading this – I am sorry, but today I am feeling #blessed!
Yesterday I celebrated my 40th birthday – hard to believe I know!!
Here’s some background for you…I was actually born on my Mum’s 28th birthday, and it was always a special time for us as I was growing up.
Sadly my Mum passed away in June 2000, and since then I have found I have a particularly difficult time around early December – I can never quite work out if I want to party and celebrate or stay home and cry…
I can honestly say I had the most wonderful day yesterday – I celebrated with family and friends – old and new – close and from afar…and I am truly grateful.
All of you who passed on birthday greetings via social media, texts and phone calls or visits with cake, flowers and gifts, have reminded me just how loved I am – and it’s a very special feeling!
So thankyou to everyone – and happy birthday Mum xo
