My baby girl comes home today! FOR GOOD!
Well, granted she has been home on her day off every week, but always brings home 2 - 4 people, so we never quite had time together. It has been a joy to entertain all those young people, but....
I' ve missed her.
BUT she comes home today. She is my birthday present.
Because today, I turn 40.
My friend called me this morning to wish me a happy birthday. Her 40th birthday is on Friday! She was saying how she is kind of disappointed with her accomplishments in life.
I love my life. I am at peace with who I am in my precious Lord. Not that HE still doesn't have MAJOR work to do, but as of today, life is good. Not easy, or even fun sometimes. But it sure is good.
My mom is making my birthday dinner. Paella. I asked for tamales, but she didn't like that idea. lol. Thats considered everyday food for her. Its just family, and there will be 24 people there. She is all upset because we couldn't do our normal big celebration with friends also, seeing how its Tuesday, and we leave this weekend, when she would have done the big thing. After all, we are hispanic, and we LOVE to celebrate anything! For John's 40th, we have about 100+ people.
When we were first married, John, being the ever Irishman, didn't get it. After almost 23 years, he is getting used to it.
So, off to vaccum. The dogs don't stop shedding on account of a birthday. : )
