Yes, today I turn 42. My celebration is a week long as always, and it started last night when my family called me to greet me happy birthday.

My boy’s been singing Happy Birthday for days now, sometimes even teasing me by saying “dear Daddy..” Then looking at me impishly, after which he says “dear Mommy”. (That’s my tyke at almost 4.). It’s a happy day for me and I feel a celebration within when I feel Angelo’s arm around me. I feel so blessed that I have my boys who I wake up next to every morning. I’ve been happily married for almost 8 years now, and we’re going strong. I have both parents with me even if they’re 10,000 miles away. I’m so lucky to have the siblings that I have, and the friends who have always been there.

Looking back through previous birthdays, this is one of those that I feel most grateful for all that I have been given during what has been my life so far.

I’ve had my challenges, but I dwell and count my blessings first.
