Well, constant readers I'm a year older. And all in all it was a very good birthday. I didn't hear from my son for the first time ever, and it made me just a little sad to realize it, until First Daughter said that she didn't think it meant anything since he never celebrates his own birthday, it just doesn't mean anything to him. And I know she's right. After all, you get to a certain age and it really is just another day. But what a great day I had. So many of my friends and family reached out over facebook to wish me a happy day. And in person.
The wee ones finger painted me two masterpieces, and gave me the most yummy red velvet cheese cake. I don't how they kept it a secret but they did! :) And first daughter called and texted more than once which was wonderful. And Second Daughter took me out to dinner at my favorite English Pub and brought me a bottle of wine and made me my favorite lemon cupcakes. And Rachel and Ross gave me surprise Krispy Kremes. It continues to be a treat filled weekend. You have to understand with my kids living in a different city I never expect anything on my birthday. And I feel very loved a blessed. I heard from almost everyone.
The ones I didn't hear from always make me a little sad, until I realize that it's probably because they just forgot or they have drifted so far from my life that perhaps it doesn't matter. And with my birthday being on Friday the wishes are still rolling in late. Better late than never I always say. :)
