Did you know that it takes on average 75 years before the saguaro cactus grows an arm?
I'm glad that when I was born on this very day that I already came equipped with 2 arms.
I hope I have many more years to put those arms to work.
Speaking of putting my arms to work, not too many birthdays ago I remember thinking it would be a pure miracle if I would ever be able to bear children in this life. Hmmm...that's kind of funny...what a waste of time wondering.
Today I am especially grateful to be able to experience the beauty of everything that was created for and in this world.
I'm also glad that I have the very satisfying opportunity to create things.
I took a drive with the kids (I frequently do that) and had to pull off the road to capture some of the beauty that is unique to where I live....The Sonoran Desert. It gave me time to reflect and to think about what I want to accomplish until the next birthday. I really did keep the list very short...perhaps a little hike (ok fine maybe an extreme hike) through the Grand Canyon.
My husband asked what I wanted for my birthday and since he can't sew I asked for some really good conditioner....I don't spend very much money on cosmetics but I am a sucker for the below conditioner.
