Now that I am over the hill (for several years now) I usually dread my birthday. I don't like when it comes around and I try to keep it "low key". But as usual, friends and family don't let me forget. Ragged and I had a very nice "low key" dinner and knitting at her house, which was extremely enjoyed after a tough day at work! I even saw signs that Cynical really does live there! He showed up. I appreciate that he let me sit in his spot on the couch! It was very comfy. Thanks for all your hospitality!

On the actual said day, I had to work.....and had planned to get through the day without a peep of aging to get around to coworkers. We have new staff and no one would have had a clue of the marked day since I have the list of birthdays and no one else has seen it. However, a plant arrived addressed to me from a local floral shop. The first hint. When I returned from lunch, a cute bag full of yarn with a special, handmade card was found in my office chair. It was from a coworker. She was extremely generous and I loved her choice. She has been a joy to have around the office and she's an avid crocheter. She said a little bird told her about the birthday and I probably have another coworker to thank for that. Said coworker had given me a knitting book for Christmas and it was a very nice surprise. She is also very kind and great to work with. Finally, the boss comes in with a scrumptious bag from Great Havest filled with cookies and chocolate chip pumpkin bread. Extremely generous and thoughtful. I also received cherished wishes from others.

I get to celebrate for a week because next week are several lunch and dinner dates with special friends.

My family was generous with lots of hugs and kisses, dinner, cake, cards and gift card to Hobby Lobby! My husband and two girls are so special to me and love them dealy, no words can describe.

I am taken aback with the reminder of my special blessings and what a joy it is to have them in my life. This realization happens every year and is the best gift of birthday! Love them all!

Humble thanks!
