Happy Birthday Weneki (with pictures added)

Making a wish!

I'll huff and I'll puff ....

I did it!

"This is the day the Lord has made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalm 118: 24

It is also the 40th anniversary of the day my daughter, Weneki, was born. Let cymbals and bells and whistles proclaim it is a day for celebrating. It is really hard for me to figure out how the years that seemed to stand still at times have passed by so quickly. How is it possible that my bald headed baby girl is today a grown woman who laments all the gray hair showing through her color treated hair? How is it that she can on the West coast celebrating with her friends while I'm on the East coast getting ready to go to bed without bestowing one birthday hug?

There are many things I could tell you about Weneki. I've already done that in several posts since I've been writing this blog. To say the day she was born was a highlight of my life would not be an exaggeration. She makes me proud. She makes me happy. She makes me laugh.

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl. I love you more than a marching band that spells out your name in the middle of a football field.

Today my heart is full of gratitude for the gift of WE. I'm grateful for surgeries with good outcomes.

Wishing for you wishes that come true,
Merry ME

I should also clarify that that cake had all 40 candles lit on it, and I blew them all out in one shot. I was nervous that it would take 3-7 blows, but I just needed 1 burst of hot air. :)
