It's My Birthday!

Ok, so my birthday isn't actually today, it's Monday. However, my husband is working Monday and so he decided to give me my birthday wishes and gifts today. And I L*O*V*E what he got me. He shopped around for weeks to get me a brand new sewing machine because mine actually died about a month ago. (I know, he's so sweet) I'm totally excited to start sewing again!

I'm still a little bummed that he won't be home on my actual birthday but I'm glad that we were able to spend today together.

Normally I don't really think much about my birthdays. To be completely honest, I usually forget about them all together until the day before (sometimes even the day of) when someone says something about it. I'm not a big party person and since my daughter's birthday is so close to mine, I'm usually thinking about her birthday. This year is different in a way though. I'm inching closer to a whole new decade in my life and that has me thinking about getting older and perhaps, if I'm lucky, a little wiser. And in that spirit, I've found some quotes to share about aging, wisdom, and life in general.

"The soul is born old and grows young. That is the comedy of life. The body is born young and grows old. That is life's tragedy." -Oscar Wilde.

"Life is a process. We are a process. The universe is a process." -Annie Wilson Schaef

"Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself."- Kahlil Gibran
