Do you know what day it is????
Here's what I have learned in my 30 years.
I've learned that despite what Robert Fulgam says, you don't learn everything you need in life in Kindergarten.
I've learned that despite my obnoxiousness, I am still likeable.
I've learned that despite my upbringing, I am a great, caring, loving person (once you get passed the wall)
I've learned that I can get along with monks, children, radicals, punks, crazy, sane, and overly intelligent people and I believe that is a gift.
I've learned the gift of having a friend for a long time... they know you, even when you feel you don't know yourself.
I've learned that I shouldn't be embarrassed by other's actions, I should only be embarrassed about my own.
I've learned to follow my heart, despite my brain and the hurt that may ensue, it makes me, me!
I've learned that it is great to be a young mother, and I have nothing to be ashamed about.
I've learned that you should always "give back"
I've learned that I am sooo fortunate and I really shouldn't be embarrassed about it, because I was very unfortunate also.
Well, I have learned a lot more than that, but I seem to have a residual headache, and seeing as it is my birthday ~ I deserve a nap!
Hope you all have as wonderful of a day as I intend on having!
Its all good.
Wishing you the best birthday - Ever!
ps - I forgot to mention, I loved the pictures of the kidlettes. They are soooo cute!
That is a very good sentiment.
