Yesterday was my birthday.  I turned 23. . . again. . . or some configuration of those numbers.   It was a beautiful day filled with greetings, kind words, and expressions of appreciation.  I felt so loved by family and friends and especially my fellow blogger friends at Two Pretzels, Trophy Life, and Written Permission. Thank you ladies for your kind words.  I appreciate the love and support I have been shown and especially the encouragement as I muddle my way through this blogging thing.  

As I was feeling over-whelmed with appreciation for the many words of love, I found myself wishing that it didn’t take birthdays to bring forth such sentiments.  I know that I am guilty of this.  Waiting for this special day or that one to really let others know that I appreciate them.  I really want to work at changing this.  I want to work at letting others know in the present moment how thankful I am to have them in my life. . . 

But I digress. . .

When I got home last night Mr. Charlie excitedly let me know that he had presents for me.  He has been telling me for a week that he was going to give me presents on my birthday.  Want to see what I got?

 A firetruck, a 4-Wheeler, a tool belt and a baseball!  

Oh, and a tiny fake chameleon from Chanelle! 

Does it get any better than this?
