Lucky, lucky

Yesterday was my daughter's 6th birthday party.

Following her "treasure hunter" theme, twenty-plus children charged by joy, sugar, and excitement decorated treasure chests, cracked open geodes, and dug for tumbled gemstones. They frolicked through the house, the basement, upstairs, outside. The rains held off so the children could bounce, bounce, bounce in the moonwalk.

I am so lucky.

Lucky that I have these three children who did not come easily (but that is a story for another day). Lucky that we have the means and opportunities to juggle extracurriculars. Lucky that my worries revolve around what to cook for dinner, not if there is enough for dinner.

Funny. It's really in one's perspective, isn't it? This gray and blustery morning, I'm looking forward to some quiet days. Maybe we'll clear some time to decorate more treasure chests.


  1. Yay! I love birthday party crafts...especially when it can be done by a wide age range of children. Happy Birthday to you kiddo.

  2. Thanks, Deva. The party girl had a wonderful time. The glow hasn't faded yet.
