And we had a wee party.
Just family and a couple of friends. It never sounds much, but it's always a lot of work. A lot more work than I anticipate. There is always the last minute rush to get a few things done. And there is always something forgotten. This time I forgot the damn blackboard message, and to do my hair, so it just quickly got pulled back.
At times like these I think about my own Mum and just how she has influenced me. One thing I have learnt from my Mum is the importance of a can-do attitude. My Mum is a very talented lady. But even when she has not done something before, she believes in herself that she is able to do it. And she does. I don't quite share the same talents as her, but I admire her attitude immensely and am proud to say that I share that same attitude. Without it I would not have accomplished many things, and with it, I've loved creating, decorating and admiring my own work for Mila's 1st birthday.
I am so grateful that I've been raised to know the importance of a can-do attitude, and I hope I, in turn, are instilling it in my own children.
Happy first birthday sweet sweet Mila xxx
