In the span of just over a week, our family will celebrate my birthday, Elijah will turn one, my sister’s new baby’s will be born, and Mercy will turn four. It is a bit of a marathon, really, but what a reminder of how very much I have to be thankful for.
I am heading out in a few minutes for a night of celebrating with dear girlfriends, and I am wearing make-up, cute shoes and jewelry. Doug gave me dresses and a marvelous gift card for four spa massages. Wow. And our sweet cell group celebrated me last night with gifts and cake and a family-friendly party. Sweet.
Tonight life feels very, very good.
