You will smile and feel loved

You will wake up this morning with a smile on your face. You will lay in bed for few extra minutes, just because you can. You will decide to bake your favorite treat for breakfast, and you will relish your favorite smell- cinnamon rolls baking the kitchen. Your mother will greet you with a hug and a “Happy Birthday!” You will smile and feel loved.

You will remember that your dad is not here to celebrate with you, and you will be sad. You will think of him often and reserve him a few thoughts filled with memories of happiness. You will remember how he felt about you. You will smile and feel loved.

You will take a long, hot shower, put on your new favorite Gap jeans and a top, and then turn on your laptop. You will read facebook messages, emails, and twitter updates from friends all over the world wishing you a happy birthday. You will smile and feel loved.

You will go to lunch with tour best friends at your new favorite Mexican restaurant. You will order chicken quesadillas and your celebratory Mexican martini. You will laugh for hours and be thankful for your best girls. You will smile and feel loved.

You will convince your best friend to go see Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs in 3D. You will both laugh at the hot dogs, sushi, pizza, bagels, and ice cream falling from the sky. You will share a bag of popcorn mixed with M&Ms. You will smile and feel loved.

You will open your presents from your mom in a pink bag with a cupcake made out of glitter. She knows you too well. Inside you will find the most adorable black and white umbrella, two sweet (almost to the point of making you cry) cards, and Twilight. She knows you’ve been wanting that DVD for months. You will smile and feel loved.

You will lay in bed before you fall asleep and think back over the events of the day. It was a birthday to be remembered.

You will smile because you are loved.
