It’s A Christmas Time Birthday!


Yes, today is my birthday! WooHoo! Each year I try to do something out of the ordinary or unusual on this day but this time it has been a bit different.

Beach, Walking, Shoes, Sand, OceanI decided for my birthday I wanted to get new walking shoes. Yes, my exciting activity for my birthday was to get shoes so I can exercise better. Now in the past, I would usually go to the department store and pick out any sneakers that seem to feel okay when I walked but this time I wanted good shoes – ones designed just for exercise. Jeff and I have started a walking program so we actually both got new shoes today. That was my big gift to myself! As ordinary as that sounds, I was excited.

From there we went to the beach. I always try to go to my happy place on my birthday! It has been over a month since I walked along the seashore and it felt amazing to be there. Even though temperature was only 44 degrees, I didn’t care. As I’ve said before, I love being by the ocean no matter the temperatures or weather. It is a healing balm for me, mentally and physically. And today was perfect.

Beach, Birthday, This evening, my family had a wonderful dinner for me with surprises, good food and the beautiful gift of time – sitting around the table, sharing stories, planning holiday activities and sharing memories of past celebrations. I loved every minute.

So are there any other December birthday babies out there??? If so, Happy Birthday!

Big Hugs!
