birthdays and blessings

A little happy birthday to myself.
Five years ago today I wrote my first post...

It's my blog's birthday but more importantly...
it's also that of my youngest, our baby,
who is anything but a baby anymore.
Happy Birthday to our sweet loving boy Zb,
who brightens this world with his energy and enthusiasm for life.
I think you can get a sense of him from these pics...

even though they were taken on his fourth birthday.
I know.
He's a mess.
He's a pistol.
He is a love and full of love for everyone he knows.
He's a miracle, truly Heaven sent.
He'll probably never know how much of one.
But I do.
And for that I'm eternally grateful.
I only have to look at my kids to know that God exists.
God doesn't always give us what we want.
But He always give us what we need.
In Zb's case, He gave us both.

While we're on the subject of gratitude,
thank you
to each and every one of you,
for reading this blog of mine.
I hope you know 
that I know
you're out there reading :)
I'm grateful for you.
I hope you know that too.
