I have been so richly blessed in my life that at times I take the blessings for granted. I figure because it's something I have done or experienced that it's been the same for everyone. Now I'm not saying that I've had what some would consider major blessings like I've never won the mega millions or anything like that but the things that I need are always supplied and most of the things that I want I've gotten those things too (maybe not when I was throwing a fit to get them but at some point in time I usually get something that I've been asking for or have asked for).

For example, at 20 I got pregnant. I was young and single and being a mom wasn't on the top of my to do list, it was down there at the bottom with having a root canal to be exact but yet and still at 21 I had a beautiful little boy. For 4 years it was just me and that little boy, in health, illness, good times and bad. In the 11 years that have now passed my heart has expanded 3 more times and the bond with my oldest although changed is still pretty much the same. We have a quiet bond not easily explained but to me it is a source of comfort and strength. To know that my now teenage son will still come to me for some of the little and all of the big things but is still independent enough to only ask my advice then use it or not - well that's something special to me.

Two of my other 3 are getting there - this morning my 10 year old daughter and my 4 year old son did a mad scramble to make sure that Mommy had a great birthday. I was treated to waffles in bed complete with candles, and a bouquet of flowers. My daughter has taken care of the soon to be 2 year old and every time I come out of the room to do my normal mom activities I'm told firmly, "Don't worry Mommy, I'll do it you go rest. It's your birthday."  I ask you how is that not a blessing? I know there will probably be a little more housework than normal for me to do tomorrow but you know what it's worth it. To give my children the comfort of knowing mom trust you enough to let you "handle it".........that's also a blessing and something special. So today I'm just going to kick back, relax and enjoy my special day :)
