I just had the BEST BIRTHDAY I've had in years. From start to finish it was just an amazing day.
1. I got the job that I had been hoping for. More money than I had expected AND the possibility of tuition reimbursement for a grad program I've been looking at. YIPPEE!
2. I had some amazing connections with family and friends.
I went out to dinner at a la-dee-dah fancy restaurant with my husband, my brother and my sister-in-law. (Although I've been told they have the best steaks in town not one of us ordered a steak. But the duck, the halibut and Ahi Tuna were stunning!)
I also had some great phone calls/emails/cards that brightened my day. In particular I had a great talk with my cousin in Renton, WA and my brilliant-and-delightfully-kooky inventor kid brother in California.
3. I was still on a spiritual high from the recent worldwide conference of my church.
Put that all together and life is just bowling me over with blessing right now.
There is a small town in Gooding County called Bliss, Idaho. But I'd say I've found my bliss right where I am.
