Birthday Gifts

I really wanted to start celebrating my birthday differently.  By giving instead of receiving…I’ve already received this beautiful gift of life.  So I made a little list…most of it I was able to accomplish today.

  • Crafts with each of my kids
  • Art for an artist friend
  • 10 dollar bills planted in the toy aisle of the dollar store
  • Cookies for our 2 elderly neighborss
  • Choosing 10 friends to lift in prayer today
  • Organizing Hubs’ dresser drawers
  • A phone call to someone feeling lonely this first holiday without a loved one
  • Food for a family in need
  • Cookies for our letter carrier
  • Thanking my mama for loving me every day of my life
  • Buying baby #5 his or her first book
  • Starting a crochet project for a dear friend
  • Homemade play dough for 3 of the kids’ playmates
  • 2 anonymous care packages

And if you can count that high, you’ll know just how many years I celebrated today!
