Be Still My Birthday Heart

By Zenparenting1 @ZenParenting1
April 30th is my birthday. This year, I'll be 36. Normally, I don't much care about my birthday. I mean, I like it just fine, but I don't make a big deal out of it and don't get overly excited. This year, for reasons unbeknownst even to me, I've been excited. I mentioned my feelings, in passing, to my dear friend Jen of Attached Parents at Work and the next thing I know, this showed up in my newsfeed.

She cleared her calendar for the day, spent more than seven hours creating, drawing, loving me in the 90 degree heat and ugly humidity. For me. Just me. That's love. And it's a love I've felt from precious few people in my life. That's who she is. She's my friend. That means something...to both of us.
