Happy Me!

Today is my birthday.

Number 42.

I'm not really sure how this I went from turning the "big 4-0" to actually being in my 40s, but I'm thinking it has something to do with Mary, Benjamin, and Luke! ;)

Feeling so very blessed today. I have good health, a strong faith life, a wonderful husband of nearly 18 years (wow...that sounds like a long time by today's standards!) and three beautiful children.

Life is good!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

P.S.  I have really been working on finding the beauty in everyday life.  Mary finds it simply in nature.  While blogging one early morning, I was struck by the beauty of the sunrise.  Needless to say, it stormed later that same morning!


  1. Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a wonderful day. Mine is next week... the big 39!!

  2. Happy Birthday! I turn 42 in almost exactly a month! I too can't hardly believe I'm "that old". As fast as life goes by, I'll blink and be 62! Wow! Have a great day!

  3. Valerie, happy birthday, and wishing you many blessings in the year ahead. It only gets better!! love the beautiful pics.

  4. Wishing the happiest of birthdays. Enjoy every minute :-)

  8. Well, Happy Be-lated Birthday my dear friend. I really hope that you had an amazing day.

    As a gift, I gave you an award on my blog. Due to computer problems I am a few days late letting you know.

    The photos are beautiful. Each morning I have been waking up thinking about Abundance, what abundance will I find today? I ask. Seems we are still thinking alike.
