It’s my Birthday and I can cry if I want to…

I woke up this morning…and when I say I woke up, I mean I have been awake since about 3am… Stressing over a toddler who doesn’t want to sleep in his own bed, he can also throw epic tantrums, and a baby who was up every 2-3 hours.

I poured myself a LARGE cup of coffee and I thought to myself if this is what 29 looks like what does 30 look like?? So naturally I cried into my coffee cup (I’m sure any mom can relate). Hoping no one would notice.

Did I mention its a blizzard outside right now?…So I cried more. Thinking this is the WORST Birthday ever!

Then two little hands tugged on my leg and asked for a bowl of oatmeal.

That is when I realized 29 may not be glamorous but this is my season and it is beautiful and I have so much to be thankful for!

So I thought every Thursday I want to give you guys five things I am grateful for. As a reminder that life is messy but in the mess it is wonderful!

  1. I’m grateful for 29 nine years of life on this planet! Thanks Mom and Dad for putting up with me!
  2. I’m thankful for that hunky husband of mine that is so easy going and puts up with my crazy ideas, and crazy emotions.
  3. I’m so thankful for my babies they keep life ever┬áchanging and I have learned so much about myself in this season of motherhood.
  4. I’m thankful for calving season! I get to look out my bay window all day and see new life being born all day! Those cow ladies are truly amazing! Not to mention a new born calf is pretty much the most adorable site. It will put a smile on anyone’s face.
  5. I’m thankful for my gift to garden. I get to share and teach my love for gardening with new, and old gardeners alike!

What are you guys thankful for?

Annnddd quick question…Is it to early to have a slice of cake? Asking for a friend…
