Yesterday I celebrated another birthday. I stopped counting about 10 years ago because age is just a number. My health and well being is what is important and what I need to work on. So I am trying to eat right, walk more and get more sleep. But as I woke up with hubby singing “Happy Birthday” to me I had to decide what to do for my birthday. Hubby said anything I want so thought maybe lunch or dinner out, I am not one for a showy day. As the day went on and I waited for hubby to get dressed, my front door opened and in walked my son and his family. They live about one hour away and this was a surprise. Shortly after that the rest of the clan came and I found out the girls were taking me out to lunch while the boys stayed home and ordered pizza. I was delighted and so surprised.
The day was perfect with close to 70 degree weather – this is NY people, that does not happen. I hate celebrating my birthday because of the month and the fact that the weather would never cooperate. But today it did – lunch was great, got cards, flowers, balloons and ice cream cake…..plus hugs and kisses – calls, texts, emails and great conversation. What more could a mom ask for. I am blessed.
This morning I had breakfast with some good friends – who treated me – and the celebration goes on and on. Not bad for an old lady…lol
