I really had to squeeze the 25 candles on the cake, which had been baked and decorated to his specification, though the stars were an addition from his little sister. (I'll put the recipe and instructions, such as they are, on my other blog.)
Celebrating his birthday yesterday, set me thinking. I realised that I have now been a mother for over half my life. My son is now older then I was when he was born! It takes some adjusting to.
I always find my children's birthdays are times to count my blessings.
And I love anticipating what the future will bring us as a family.
Advent is a time for waiting and anticipating, so this is my little Pause for Advent, which is co-ordinated by Floss.
I do hope you have time to spend a few moments looking back at happy memories and looking forward to exciting futures.
