Today is my birthday. I dare not say how many times I have been around the sun, but let’s just say, it has been quite a few. So far, this birthday is shaping up very nicely indeed. Larry and I started celebrating when we took our trip up to the Stanley, where we had some spirited guests wish me a “Happy Birthday” as well. A Spirited Stay at the Stanley
Last night, he surprised me with totally impromptu tickets to go see Elton John and his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour. I have seen Sir Elton a few times, and he is always the ultimate entertainer. Although he has trouble walking around the stage, he can still play the piano like no one else. Despite the blizzard-like conditions, and the bitter cold, Sir Elton was well worth it.
In between jobs, I went to visit with my friends Janet and Bob and we celebrated over Janet’s fabulous fruit tart, made with some of the Living Tree Community Almond Butter I gave to her. More Treats from Living Tree Community Foods I had a delicious goodie bag filed wit all kinds of yummy treats to cook with waiting for me on the table, with a yummy new recipe included. They know me oh so well.
Literally, just as I came home from Janet and Bob’s, there was a flower delivery being dropped off as I drove into my driveway. The flowers were from my friend and sister Kathy, in California. Kathy and I have literally known each other our whole entire lives. We grew up as sisters and have been family since I was 5 and she was 4. Our birthdays are just 3 days apart too. As Kathy’s card read, she sent me some flowers “that looked like the California sun”. That was so thoughtful and sweet and the flowers are absolutely gorgeous. Happy Birthday to you as well my dear friend. I love you and miss you lots.
And I have been feeling a whole lotta love from all my wonderful friends and family all day, receiving a ton of good birthday thoughts and well wishes. Thank you all. All of you are what makes life so much fun. I might have to just keep on having birthdays.
Many, many thanks to all of you. I feel very loved and especially blessed to have so many wonderful family and friends in my life.
