Today is my birthday.
I've become my mother.
I look like her. I sound like her. I collect piles of stuff around my house like her.
This year celebrating my birthday has been a big deal. We've gathered around food with friends and talked and shared. I've opened gifts from near and far. There's been plenty of singing of that birthday song. I've eaten my weight in pie and cake.
God has placed me in a season of being blessed with tangible gifts. I'm not sure why or even how long it will last. I do know that I am so, so thankful. It seems like rest. Refuge.
I can't wait to tell you all about it.
God is good, all the time!
