For the last 42 years, ok not that long but for a LONG time, I have hated my birthday. I wish I could honestly figure out where this hate comes from, although I have a few sneaking suspicions that I will keep to myself. Yet as I have grown into a middle aged adult, I truly have worked at embracing my birthday as a day of celebration of life vs. a battle of time.
And this weekend, I was reminded how very blessed I truly am. I was surrounded by friends and family, and made to feel more special than I can even describe in words…
So this post will have less words, and more pics, because I truly can’t find the words to describe the blessings I feel today, and always. And of course…food pics. Because isn’t this why we run so much? LOL!!!
So after quite a bit of deliberation I found myself looking hard at my circle of friends once again today. I am cutting back more on social media, removing negative forces from my world, and realizing not everyone has the best wishes for us in life.
But…some people DO want nothing more than the best for us…and those are the gifts that I hold true to my heart on days/weekends like this…
Here’s to a new week, more miles, amazing relationships and even better food!
Questions….Do you enjoy your birthday? What’s your favorite birthday treat?
