A Birthday Gift

While everyone lay sleeping in our quiet house, I have time to ponder the last 365 days.  In a few minutes, it will be my birthday.  While I have many things for which to be thankful, I must say these moments, these exact moments, when everyone lay sleeping in our quiet house, is most precious.  

Thank you God.
Thank you Karma.
Thank you Family.
Thank you Husband.
Thank you Friends.
Thank you Blog-Friends.
Thank you In-Laws.
Thank You Strangers.
Thank You Coffee and Wine Makers.
Thank You World for all of my blessings.

Here are my Two Favorite Blessings...

(Taken in the hotel, after a long day of swimming.  They almost never sleep together, so this was a rare treat to find them so cuddled and twin-like.)

I love those moments when you're alone, up early, when you can remember who you are as opposed to being what you're supposed to be.
