Thank you all for your many early birthday wishes -- and for your well-wishes and blessings for the birth of my baby.
Here I am, today, 31 years old. I did think the baby would come while I was still 30, but this little one is still quite happy to travel along inside for now. For today, I'm enjoying my birthday, a beautiful, unseasonably warm day, and working on practicing the art of surrender. This baby will come in its own time.
Until then, we have a birthday cake to make, some small projects to work on, maybe a countertop to wipe, some birds to watch, and two other beautiful wee ones to love and treasure as they are today.
Today is a very special day, indeed.
