the secret keeper

I asked Lauryn on Friday,

"What did you and Daddy do today?"

She replied with an emphatic,

"We bought you a birthday cake, but I am NOT going to tell you about it!"


I had a great day today celebrating 32 years on the planet!   

I can say with certainty that I feel more confident than I did at 22.  Birthdays being a time of self-reflection....

I can say that I'm a great mom, a loving wife, and a good friend, and feel confident all those things are true.   I  can also say I could be a better mom, a better wife, and a better friend, and know those things are also true.  

Maybe getting older and wiser means accepting both of those statements as being simultaneously true.

Or maybe I've been doing too much self-reflecting, and should get off the computer and spend this birthday evening with my handsome husband.  (Good thinkin' old wise one!)

In all honesty, I don't think there's any way you could be a better friend, at least not to the girl way over in Japan. But maybe I'm biased. :-)
