Having your birthday while working at an elementary school is the most fun thing. I was totally celebrated for about a week. A mom decorated my classroom door:

And one of the teachers spearheaded a celebrating of my birthday with her class. There were presents all week. But on my actual birthday, my desk looked like this:

So, grateful.

It was a fun week, and I have been blessed.

I am grateful.

I visited a friend this summer, and as we were talking she asked me what is going on in my life.

Meaning, how are you...really?

And my answer was that I am really happy with my life. I was thinking about this today, and I am grateful for my life.

I am grateful for my family.

I am grateful for my church family.

I am grateful for my job, and for good friends at work.

I am grateful for the music in my life, because there certainly is a lot of it. :)

I'm grateful for the new furry family member in my life...Penny Lane. This is her napping:

I had lunch today with a good friend, and my family. I turn 45 tomorrow.

Life is good. I am grateful.
