Why? Birthday Reflections!

So, today is my birthday. I’ve been terrible at birthday suggestions this year, as life is feeling pretty complete at the moment. Although, you know, the iPhone 6 does drop today…

Last year, I got a pretty amazing birthday gift: we found out I was pregnant with Jeffrey. Kind of hard to top that one (and no need to be repeating it, at least not yet). But in reflecting on that a year later, I started thinking that sometimes the universe (AKA, fate or God or whatever you believe in) hands you exactly what you need exactly when you need it.

Sometimes that’s something big, like your life going in the direction you hoped it would.


Sometimes it’s as simple as a day off from work.

Sometimes it’s the people that come into your life at just the right moment and are exactly who you need them to be.


Sometimes it’s getting to start and end each day with the person who makes you whole.

So, what I want for my birthday this year is for the universe to keep up it’s grand plan for me. It’s been going pretty well so far! And I want the chance to slow down and appreciate the grand plan as it’s happening. That will make this year even better than the last.
