it's been a weird kind of a birthday.
with the horror of yesterday's earthquake in Christchurch it didn't really seem right to be too celebratory.
instead, it's been a day of deep, deep gratitude.
especially for these precious people:
i often wonder (and by 'wonder' i don't mean, ponder or consider, i mean WONDER - as in "n. awe, astonishment, surprise, or admiration; a marvel") how i get to be here. with this husband, and these children, living this life, in this place.
and so, our Birthday Season is over for another year.
