Can you wish yourself Happy Birthday?

No, I'm not going to wish myself a Happy Birthday, but as I sit here I've realized a few things:

1. I have a great family, 3 beautiful kids who know their momma loves roses and chocolate.
2. I have a husband who tolerates a lot right now with me not feeling well and being a crab.
3. Family and Friends are VERY, VERY important to me and I don't know what I'd do without them.
4. I've accomplished some cool things in 35 years of being here like becoming a mom or speaking at a national conference.
5. I love reading, writing, watching rugby, camping, taking long walks, sitting on porches or balconies while it's raining, the color red, anything that is Chinese, making jewelry, the movie Fargo and the movie Jaws, kettle corn, taking pictures of anything that will stand still for the flash to go off...and the list goes on...
6. No matter how bad you think your life is, there is always someone who is worse off than you. Be thankful for the things you do have instead of wishing for more or something you can't have.
7. Don't be so quick to judge people, I've been burned a few times jumping off at people's appearance when they have way more to offer than they first appear to.
8. I tend to ramble on and on...... get the point. :-) Thanks to all my friends and family members who wished me a happy b-day (especially Auntie Cheryl and Uncle Wendell!!) today. I love you all and couldn't be happier to have you all in my circle.
