What do you want for your birthday, DH asked.
New bag? Perfume?
I didn’t need to think about it.
“No, none of the above. I replied.”
The truth is, I’d LOVE to be sitting in my living room with my five children for hours on end, playing Monopoly with them. Just like when they were younger.
THAT, is on the very top of my list. My heart.
Maybe on my 60th?”
Hmm, so Instead,
I’d take a….
- A lingering stroll in a park for fun, not exercise.
Stopping to examine Gods creation.
3.Sitting at Pilot Mountain, breathing in the fresh air and watching the birds fly by.
- Maybe, wading in the waterfalls. But it’s much to cold this time of year.
5.Sitting on my porch rocking chair, and just staring off in the distance.
6.Reading into the night without watching what time it was, or worries about the next days tasks.
7.Sleeping until noon. Coffee and a Western omelette in bed.
8.Waking to a clean house because it was clean the night before.
These are the little things that bring me Joy.
And the best part is, you can’t put a price tag on them.
I have experienced so much heart break in my life, and at fifty, I have come to realize it’s made me who I am today. I love hard, and feel all the feels, and had I not given my life to Christ when I did, I know I would have never seen fifty. So when I wake up on my birthday I will be praising the Lord wholeheartedly.
