Yesterday was my birthday & boy there were a lot of thoughtful people!
- 15 facebook birthday wishes
- 1 TWILIGHT ecard
- 1 blog shout out
- 1 blog tribute
- 5 birthday phone calls
- 1 surprise gift at my door
- 3 birthday emails
- 2 birthday texts
- 1 home cooked birthday dinner (my dad's rotisserie roast beef, my mom's handmade pasta & sauce)
- 1 made-from-scratch birthday cake (my mom again, she really is the original MARTHA)
There were a few moments that stood out in my day that truly melt my heart. Here is my gift from E, who is 10. It is a book titled, "The Wonderful Adventures of Super Mom!"
Another heart-melting moment was when D, my 7 year old, said the dinner prayer last night and said, " We are thankful for Grandma and Grandpa because without them my mom couldn't be my mom. I am thankful for my mom being born."
I have always been a daddy's girl. A post will follow that will elaborate on that. But for now, I will tell you that my dad put in hours on making my birthday gift perfect. It is so big, and made with his own hands, that we could not even get it home yet. I will cherish it forever! So, you will have to wait to find out what it is until we go and pick it up with the van.
Thank you to all for just thinking of me yesterday! It is all I could ask for!
