So today I woke up to find this on the chalkboard in our kitchen...
Apparently it was Wyatt's idea to add the word 'dear' - so sweet.
So yes, today is my birthday. My thirty-seventh birthday. I have been reluctant (for some strange reason) to turn 37 but now that it's here I'm embracing it. I like the fact that 3+7=10, strange mind games I'm playing with myself but it's working. I don't normally care about numbers but 37 has taken a little adjusting to.
Anyway... it has been a lovely day... full of love and hugs and birthday wishes. Paul and I went out for a fabulous little lunch after we dropped Hannah and Wyatt off to school. So nice to just sit and eat and talk - it felt like a 'date' - it felt good. After lunch we went to a little shop that I like and Paul picked this up for me...
I have wanted a Buddha for quite some time so finding this one today seemed serendipitous or perhaps, on a more zen-level, I was destined to find this particular 'young Buddha' today. He is lovely. He is a treasure.
Tonight we'll have a simple dinner, cake and perhaps a few visitors.
Feeling blessed on my birthday.
