On this day of my birth I am giving thanks for the many blessings in my life. My husband, my children, Tara, Seamus, Sara & E, my family, my dear friends, for the warmth of the sun and all the twinkling stars that light up the night, and of course, our lovable dog. With a hint of spring in the air (finally) I feel a bit of life seeping back into my bones after our long drawn out winter. I feel blessed to hear the birds chirping throughout the day and I love the smell of the earth as it begins thawing under the warmth of the sun. The promise of spring is alive today and I am thankful for my blessings!
