With Gratitude

On my birthday, I am filled with gratitude. As I view this day as MY new year, I usually spend the day reflecting on my life in the past year.

I am grateful to have married my best friend and soul mate who continues to surprise me and make me laugh everyday. Thankful that he was able to take the day off to spend time with us all day. Together he and my girls made my birthday such a special one.

I am grateful for my girls. Grateful that Sweet Cassia is growing up to be a considerate, loving, delightful little girl who questions me on a daily basis. So thankful that Baby Anjali is in our lives, that she is happy and healthy and a great sleeper... so happy that she blesses us daily with her contented nature and beautiful smiles. Very, very blessed to have two healthy, well-adjusted girls. I feel like my family is now complete.

I am so glad that my parents are healthy and such a huge part of my life. I am grateful that they make time to call or visit us often and they devote so much time, effort and energy to my daughters. I am thankful for the presence of other family and friends who made time to call or message me yesterday for my birthday and all through this past year.

Finally, I am grateful for my life, my health and my emotional and spiritual well being. I am thankful that I am able to be strong for my daughters, Darin and myself.

Here are a few photos from my day.

Woke up to Cassia's birthday greetings and hugs. Here she is making me breakfast. 

One of my favourite indulgent breakfasts. Chocolate chip pancakes with fruit. Calories don't count on your birthday

Sweet Anjali before she had her first meal- mashed avocado... that's another post. 

We match

My Dufflet Chocolate Fudge Cake... by request... very, very decadent... again no calories count!

As a side note, I love to receive birthday cards, the one on the left was handmade by Darin and Cass.
