Okay, I admit it! Another birthday! Ugh! I wasn’t really expecting much. When you’re my age and your birthday falls on a Monday, well, you know. Guess what? Sometimes when you least expect it and just let it happen, it does!
The morning of my birthday started out interesting. My hubby Bob had promised a family dinner out that night. He had to leave really early for work. I barely remember him telling me happy birthday this morning and kissing me goodbye. Oh, well… dinner, we’ve got dinner to look forward to. It’s cool I thought. Then, I got into my car and waiting there for me was one single rose placed in a water bottle and a card on my seat. Very sweet! The card was beautiful, the rose, a little wilted but, no big deal. Okay, so I’m pretty sure he made an early morning run to the gas station to do my birthday shopping. Hey, it’s the thought that counts, right? Then I got a text from him. “Happy Birthday! Just realized I’ve got night court tonight. Rain check on dinner? I love you!”
Work was great, got some lovely cards and gifts from my co-workers. I especially loved the big bag of life-savers from my old friend, Greg! I really needed those today! LOL! When I got home. Ding-dong. My best friend, Susan, sent me the most gorgeous bouquet of flowers! Don’t you think these are amazing! What would we do without girlfriends? I got birthday calls from my parents and my sister and lots of kind wishes from my Facebook friends too. Thanks so much! This birthday is starting to be pretty good after all!
And, then it got even better! My son Riley called me after school. He said he and my daughter Ireland wanted to take me to dinner tonight. Just the three of us. How could I pass that up? Are you kidding me? We went to one to one of my favorite restaurants, called Hotel Seymour. It’s a great steak place that we used to go when the kids were little. The food was delicious! The company even better! Guess what? Bob showed up to surprise me before heading off to court. What fun! It was certainly one birthday dinner I’ll never forget! Plus, I get a rain check for another! Not too bad! Do you have a birthday dinner or memory you’ll never forget? If so, please share!
