Friends and family surrounded me with their love tonight as we celebrated my birthday. The warmth of this little gathering filling me with something so deep and joyful that words seem inadequate to express the way I felt. Cards from my children filled with words of love and appreciation, of which they may never fully understand how much they mean to me. I felt just like a happy mother hen with my chicks all near me. I felt like my heart could burst from pride in each one of them and so happy to know my children's friends so well that they feel just like family to me. Its so easy to forget that they are not related. Debbie is just like a sister to me, and my children don't even remember she is not a blood relative, she is just Auntie Debbie.
Cake and dinner made with the capable hands of a daughter, decorations fun and celebratory. Gifts chosen carefully, just for me...symbols of love and of knowing just what I would love.
I will sleep soundly tonight, a smile on my lips, joy in my heart and a level of contentment that surpasses words. Thanks family, all of you, for the wonderful day ! You are all my joy : )
