Happy birthday to me!

This week has been a celebration week for me. My 76th birthday was Thursday! I woke up to a gift bag and a card, along with my usual morning coffee, and it just got better from there. Facebook is always a joy on my birthday, similar to getting the mail used to be. Instead of physical cards, I had dozens of birthday wishes, e-cards and even a happy birthday video from young friends who are members of a band in the KC area called Pompous Jack. That was a real treat!

We had already planned dinner with the local family at my favorite steakhouse so I was looking forward to that. About noon, Rob and Shelly called from Hawaii and told me that I should be expecting a delivery from a local florist. What a beautiful arrangement! I love sunflowers especially, being a Kansas girl, but the dahlias, mums and roses were beautiful, too.

Dinner at Longhorn was really good, too. Those of my age may relate, but one of the really wonderful things about it was that no one was on their phone, even LeRoy and me. The food was good and the company was better. We were well-desserted by the time the evening was over. Longhorn had sent me a coupon for a free dessert and in addition, they always give a free dessert when you eat there on your birthday. They brought plenty of spoons and we shared! Afterward, we went to Tim and Heidi’s house where we had ice cream and birthday cake with candles, as well as a gift of my favorite tangerine colored roses. I am blessed!

I love fresh flowers, but they usually don’t last long enough. These are just getting better and better, especially the roses in both bouquets. They have continued to open beautifully. These two in particular are unlike anything I’ve ever had.

Texts from grandkids who live elsewhere and cards from my sisters pretty much rounded out the celebration and I feel blessed to be so loved. Thank you all so much for helping me celebrate!
