It’s My Birthday

It’s my birthday and I can cry if I want to.

It is my birthday but so far, no tears. Instead a realization of another year to add to all the others that have piled up over time.

What is a birthday? A place in time that marks how many trips the earth has rotated around the sun while I’ve been on my personal ride called life.

It could be a time for reflection and a chance to make goals for the future.

But mostly, for me, it’s a time of giving thanks to my Maker for all that He has blessed me with. A husband and two daughters who love me and an adornment of grandchildren, sons in laws, and grown siblings.  And I can’t forget the many friends that have come beside me in my walk through this life. I am eternally grateful for them all.  

Oh, and did I mention my little dogs that live at my feet, providing me with an abundance of unconditional love.

So, it’s my birthday and if I do shed some tears, it will be out of gratitude for all the gifts that I’ve been given over my personal trips around the sun.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
