I have had such a great 42nd birthday today. I do love being a May Day baby and it always surprises me as in my head I am "living" in April and then all of a sudden it's May and another cog in my wheel of getting older turns.
I have spoken to family and friends and read cards and eaten cake. I must say that as I get older birthdays are becoming fun again. I went through a spell in my mid 20 & 30's not really bothering but now, maybe because I have our beloved daughter, Alice who gets immensely excited about birthdays and presents, I am really enjoying my birthdays again. She brings colour to my life.
I picked sweet Alice up from her after school Tuesday art lesson that she goes to and there the colours of the day became even more vibrant for me. After a couple of months of planning, placing, cutting and shaping she has made me the most gorgeous mosaic tray. I was so touched by this beautiful gift, the most beautiful ever, tears came and flowed.
Tears of sheer joy at this precious life I have, my wonderful husband and daughter, my family and friends whose lives have touched mine and I theirs. It's good to be able to dedicate a day to this once a year, I am humbled by the love that flows in my simple life.
Thank you my beautiful child, life is by no means dull with you in it xox
