Today was one of the most enjoyable days and nights of the year.
No, I did not officiate a wedding. Or a Bar Mitzvah, or even a Baby Naming. I did not create some amazing worship service. I did not create anything at all.
Today was my son’s birthday. I shut off the computer, and spent most of the day – disconnected. Alone, with only Lauren and Trevor, my soon to be 21 year old, and my 19 year old, whose birthday was today.
In the beginning of the day, I wanted to get them out of the house and do something, until I realized that we were just sitting together on the couch, and they weren’t in a hurry to leave – and so….neither was I. Later we went out, browsed around town for the day, and met my Mom and Dad and Wayne for dinner, and Trevor invited his 3 best friends from Weston. My kids have made wonderful choices in friends, and I would do anything for these kids.
The point I’m trying to make – is that I love the heck out of my kids, and I honestly think they’re amazing. We love each other, and can spend an entire day together, and wish it wasn’t over. I know that it wasn’t an accident they turned out this way, but as long as my blog carries the theme of gratitude – however it happened – I just wanted to stop and say THANKS for such amazing children.
Lauren and Trevor – You rock. And, I am the happiest MOM in the world, because I have you.
