Happy Birthday to me!

Yes, today is my birthday.  I’m 38 years old today.  I have lines in the corners of my eyes when I smile…but I smile just the same.  My life is full to overflowing with so many blessings and gifts from God.

What better gift for my birthday than for today to be the first of many that I will join in with Multitudes on Mondays.  I began my list about a week ago and will continue on, posting pieces of it here on Mondays and on Ann Voskamp’s Multitudes on Mondays community.  So here we go…

#1 watching a movie with my boys

#2 a stay home day with the little one just because

#3 the way my teeth feel right after I brush them

#4 the sound of my husband’s truck pulling into the driveway

#5 watching my sweet husband eating my ghetto chicken parmesan and liking it

#6 an extra $15 off in coupons at CVS

#7 a grilled cheese sandwich all melty and gooey

#8 my joy journal already being filled with gifts

#9 astounded by the beauty of love given with no expectations but the return of love

#10 a fridge filled with drawings, pictures, and two handmade Christmas cards from two sweet boys

#11 little boy giggles early in the morning

#12 a buttery crispy croissant that melts in my mouth

#13 driving up at church for Saturday night worship

#14 sweet Emma

#15 people with servant hearts

#16 my five-year-old’s little sound effects he makes when playing with toys

#17 hearing voices blending harmony in worship

#18 advice and encouragement from a dear friend with a sincere “you can do it”

#19 the morning sky all swirled of pinks and blues and grays

#20 rainbow colors reflected in bubbles blown

#21 seashells spread on the kitchen table all broken and lovely

#22 morning coffee in my new favorite travel cup

#23 my cell phone beeping every couple of minutes with birthday wishes from family and friends

#24 a moment of quiet reflection


Do you have a gifts list?  Oh, how I hope you will join me in listing your gifts.  Please feel free to add yours in the comment section here if you’d like.  And I’d love so much for you to read Ann’s book One Thousand GiftsYou’ll be so very blessed.
