If you could drown in love, then I have drowned today. I have cried tears of joy, laughed, and truly been humbled by all your wishes.
Birthdays were never a big deal at our house......I had one birthday party when I was growing up.
In junior high school, my girlfriends gave me a surprise party at my friend Kaye's house. It was wonderful. My mom always said, birthdays were just another day. But that is so not true.
Birthdays should be celebrated, it is the day you/we entered this world......and we have all touched someone's life, shared in happiness and sorrow, our day should be remembered. We should celebrate our birth, and the life we have lived.
Birthdays are our "get out of jail free" card.....our chance to say I love you, I am glad you were born, you mean so much to me, life is better because of you. There is some sadness today,
my dad always called me EARLY on my birthday morning( like five a.m.) Even though he died twenty years ago, I still miss those calls and his rendition of Happy Birthday.
Thank you, thank you, thank you all, this has been my best birthday ever. The love that has been shown through out this day, takes my breath away. There is no way, I can ever express how grateful I am to all of you........I have heard from friends near and far and made some new ones today, thanks to Bouncin'Barb and her incredibly sweet blog post.
Tonight I send blessings and a prayer of gratitude for love, because it has wrapped itself around me as sweetly as a baby's hug. My heart overflows.......not enough words........
