I have no idea why birthday's have become so difficult for me. Last year I hit the big 4-0 and that was really hard. I was even listening to the radio this morning and someone was celebrating their 45th birthday and they were having a hard time as well. I felt a little better knowing that I was not the only one. It is only a number and we make it seem like such a big deal and we try to make it define who and what we are. Who and what we are in Christ is the most important thing. That is what dries my tears when the flood gates open and I realize what all I have experienced in 41 years.
On Thursday we did the alphabet. Today we will do numbers. I sound like a teacher....LOL
