Yep, that would be me. 44. I feel more like 34 and as I remarked to someone earlier today, that it is amazing that I don't feel 54 considering what the last 2 years has held. We had a relaxing day. My good friends Tanya and Michelle, treated me to a pampering pedicure and we ended the day with a little family celebration. Age and birthdays have never, ever bothered me. I really have tried to always adopt the philosophy that as each year passes and each birthday comes, to embrace them all because how blessed I am to be, well, actually living and breathing. Another year, another gift. Speaking of gifts. I wanted to share with you all, this beautiful necklace that Mark gave me. It comes from a website by the name of Band of Angels. A really cool site. Anyone that has been touched by Down syndrome in anyway, should go check them out. "The Halo with a Twist symbolizes the beauty and uniqueness of individuals with Down syndrome. It is shimmering and reflective of light - a little different, sturdy, yet beautiful. The light is reflected and radiated from it. The twist is the reminder of the imperfections, which make each of us unique." I will wear this pendant as a constant reminder to myself and others of the beautiful gift of Zoey that has been so graciously bestowed upon my life because Someone thought I was do deserving. Thank you Mark, I love it more than you could possibly know.
