It’s The Little Things: Birthdays

Every moment of every day, there are people fighting for their lives, people whose lives have been cut short by some tragedy and people who are trying to cope with the loss of a loved one.

So each birthday that we celebrate the privilege of having been given another year of life in this amazing world is truly a blessing.

At the end of July, the most amazing man in the world celebrated another birthday. I am grateful for that.

Plus, there’s cake.

Caramel chocolate cheesecake...mmmm...


Have a lovely Tuesday, everyone.

    1. That cake was amazing, Carolyn. That is saying a lot from someone who doesn't have much of a sweet tooth! Thanks for the birthday wishes for the hubby. One year older, hopefully one year wiser. But then, he's married to me...wise man! LOL...
