It's my birthday!!! B is taking the day off which means I get to sleep in. It's the little things, folks.

Thirty one years old today and life is good.

Later on we're going to pick out a mystery gift. I have no idea where we're going or what it will be. Not that it matters. I Just LOVE the idea of a surprise! It brings out the little girl in me. I'm also planning on getting plenty of birthday snuggles out of my little beastie girl today.

Grateful is how I'm feeling but e.e. cummings says it best. 

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitable earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of all nothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

-e.e. cummings
