My Birthday

Thank you to Margaret for my beautiful made-from-scratch birthday cake!

Bennett and I share a birthday month, which I think is special (especially since Brian and Oliver share a birthday month, as well).

As I anticipate Bennett's upcoming birthday, I can't help but mention that I had a wonderful birthday.  Brian and I enjoyed a beautiful evening in Austin all on our own.

Birthdays are special in our family, particularly in light of having a child who has been told his birthdays are limited.  The reality is all of our birthdays are limited, it's just that most of the time we don't have to think about it.

We consider having a child with a limited life expectancy a great gift as it reminds us to live every day to the fullest.  While it's hard to add another candle to my birthday cake because it means I'm a year older, I consider it a blessing to have been given another year to enjoy the life I have been given.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10b
