Moody Monday: You Say it's Your Birthday?

It's my birthday, too!  Birthdays certainly lose some of their sparkle as we age, but on this day I'm doing my best to enjoy.  I woke and began with prayer, thankful to God for my life and for the children for which I'm responsible.  They are the one purpose for which I'm sure in life right now.

I'm back at work today after missing three days to care for sick children last week.  So it will be a busy, catch-up day there.  Tonight we'll go out to eat and work on Valentines for the school parties tomorrow.  Later this week I have plans for a girls night out to celebrate with my friends.  I'm looking forward to the fun!

I saw Mr. Wonderful this weekend and it served only to confirm my notion that I have excellent taste.  He is not perfect, but he is exactly what I want.  It's true that my heart is poised to be broken, but I can't turn away while he is still considering how much of himself he is able to share with me.  All through the day my thoughts turn to him, and I'm trying to use those moments to shift my focus from this man to God.  I ask God to remove my feelings if they cannot be shared, to help me trust that God's plan is best.
